The Port Authority of Guam welcomed its eighth passenger vessel of the year with the arrival of the MV Seabourn Pursuit.

The MV Seabourn Pursuit docked at the Port Authority of Guam at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday evening with 231 passengers and 240 crew members.

The cruise ship is set to depart the port this evening at 8:00 p.m.

“The arriving passengers and crew members from the MV Seabourn Pursuit is a boost to Guam’s tourism industry and highlights Guam as a premiere luxury cruise destination,” said Port General Manager Rory J. Respicio. 

“The MV Seabourn Pursuit’s arrival marks the eighth cruise ship to visit in 2024 and we are tracking many more cruise ships to arrive this year. What is special about this cruise ship is a majority of the arriving passengers are disembarking to catch a connecting flight or are continuing their vacation here in Guam at one of our many hotels,” he said. 

Respicio added that the arrival of the MV Seabourn Pursuit and other premier cruise ships underscores the Port of Guam’s role in our local and regional economies, aligning with Governor Lou Leon Guerrero and Lt. Governor Josh Tenorio’s vision for the Port of Guam.

Other potential cruise ship visits to Guam this year include the MV Seabourn Pursuit on Sept. 7, the Le Soleal on Oct. 8, the Carnival on Oct. 22, and the MS Asuka II on Dec. 30.
