Cruise ship shore day well organized

Writer appreciates effort that went into Port Alberni's shore trips for Holland America cruise ship.

To the Editor,

My mother and I were two of the passengers aboard the cruise ship Amsterdam when it stopped at Port Alberni on May 22. I wanted to comment on how well organized the transportation was from the pier to the shopping area of Port Alberni for passengers such as my mother, who has limited mobility.

I also wanted to say how welcoming and gracious the local artisans and store owners were. Lastly thanks very much for arranging for the Hawaii Mars water bomber display near the end of the ship’s visit; very enjoyable.

You live in a beautiful part of the province and the pride in your community shows.  Thanks for a great day.
