More than 500,000 passengers have disembarked from cruise ships at the Quebec City port of call since it was inaugurated in 2002.

"We are very proud that half a million people went through the new terminal," said Ross Gaudreault, President and CEO of the Port of Quebec, noting the cruise industry brings business to local restaurants, shops, taxis and the air port.
