The St Lawrence cruise ship season opened on Tuesday May 12-2015, with the arrival of Chicago-based Haimark Line’s 4,954-ton 210-berth Saint Laurent from Charleston, where she had just received a $3.5 million refit for her first season of Great Lakes and New England cruises.
The ship was built in 2001 as the now-defunct Delta Queen Coastal Voyages’ Cape May Light and although she has seen service in Haiti, Labrador and Chesapeake Bay waters, she has spent most of that time laid up at freshwater berths. Her present owners, Clipper Group of Copenhagen, also own sister ship Sea Discoverer, which is now in stationary use at Lerwick. Both ships are registered in the Bahamas.
|June 19-2015- 17 people were injured Thursday night when the Saint Laurent hit the Massena Lock, part of the St. Lawrence Seaway in New York State. All 17 passengers were treated and discharged from a local hospitaly. There is reported bow damage on the ship, which sails under the Haimark banner. A 10-foot gash to her bow and will cause the loss of two cruises while she is repaired.|
