Travellers aboard the cruise ship Marco Polo, which can carry 906 passengers and 354 crew, visited Corner Brook on Monday.

The ship will actually be dwarfed by the two much larger ships expected to visit Corner Brook this week.

The Arcadia and its 2,016 passengers and 880 crew members is slated to visit today.

The largest ship to visit Corner Brook all summer, the Queen Mary 2, arrives Thursday morning. The Queen Mary 2, which has a capacity for 2,620 passengers and 1,253 crew and was the largest ocean liner in the world when it was built, visited Corner Brook once before in 2004.
