Abstract

"North by East" piece about the value of the cruise ship industry to Maine and Gov. Angus King's emphasis of that point earlier this summer when he welcomed to Maine the passengers disembarking from the Island Breeze, a 1,150-passenger ship operated by Miami-based Dolphin Cruise Lines, which plans on making twenty stops in Portland this summer as part of its five-day cruise schedule from New York city to the Maritimes and back. The Portland stops will save the cruise line half a million dollars. According to Thomas Valleau, Portland's port director, the ships save $25,000 per trip by stocking up on food in Portland, rather than in New York. Meanwhile, the passengers spend a bundle of tourist dollars while ashore.
