Five cruise ships are visiting Victoria today, the most on any day this season.
Officials say the thousands of visitors flooding into the city prove the BC Capital is an incredibly popular a destination.
The first two ships, the Crystal Serenity and the Grand Princess, arrived at 7am and are departing before the other three ships arrive between 6-7pm.
The Norwegian Pearl, the Amsterdam and the Ruby Princess will be here until midnight. We’ve had five ships in one day previously, but that was several years ago.
There will be four days this cruise season where four ships visit in the same day and having three ships a day is becoming more and more common.
Officials say the ships are also staying for longer visits, which is good for the economy.
