The Port of Toronto welcomed:
12000 cruise ship passengers
36 cruise ships in 2019

Located just a short drive from the heart of downtown Toronto, the Port of Toronto has increasingly become a destination for cruise ship activity. In 2019, a record 36 passenger cruise ships carrying approximately 12,000 passengers, visited PortsToronto’s Cruise Ship Terminal.


As a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of Canada has extended the suspension of cruise vessels carrying more than 100 passengers in Canadian waters to February 2022. When the time is right, the Port of Toronto will be ready to once again welcome Great Lakes cruise ship visitors to Toronto.
