Port Saint John venues business continues to expand and attract new clients

With the harbour on one side and Uptown on the other, a view doesn’t get more uniquely Saint John than that of the Port’s two cruise terminals.

Marco Polo Cruise Terminal and Diamond Jubilee Cruise Terminal, completed in 2009 and 2012, are purpose-built facilities. Their purpose, however, extends far beyond welcoming passengers during the cruise season.

These state-of-the-art buildings offer a combined 22,000 square feet of venue space, with entirely different aesthetics.

The Marco Polo echoes captain’s quarters aboard a vessel from eras gone by. This polished rustic space is outfitted with Douglas Fir wainscoting and floor-to-ceiling windows. The open-concept space is ideal for trade shows and receptions.

Across the parking lot, the Diamond Jubilee is sleek and modern. The terminal was designed to welcome cruise passengers and host events in tandem. Crowned by a rooftop patio with a 360-degree view of the city, the Diamond Jubilee is an attraction in itself.

Both terminals are complemented by ample, off street parking. Located in the heart of the city, Port Saint John Venues are a stone’s throw from Saint John’s vibrant nightlife and cultural core. They are also within walking distance to a host of accommodations and landmarks.

“These venues have been transformed into everything from a sophisticated wedding venue to a large scale conference space for the inaugural T4G Big Data Congress. They are neutral enough to suit any decor, central enough to suit any need and adaptable enough to welcome any event, be it a business meeting, wedding or trade show,” Emily Teed, venues coordinator, says.

Even the Diamond Jubilee pedway, the glass hallway from the gangway to shore in full view of the harbour, has been used during events.

“As a port, we’re used to working in all conditions. The same goes for our venues. Whether you’re planning your special day or looking to impress your clients in a professional setting, we want to help you achieve your goal,” Teed says.
