Seven Cruise Ships in Santa Barbara this April

The first of seven cruise ships to arrive in Santa Barbara this month anchored around 8:30 a.m. today, a half hour behind schedule. The Sapphire Princess has an estimated 3,700 passengers and crew on board, and most of the guests will disembark at Sea Landing and flow into the downtown region until 4 p.m.

Georgette Friedman told Santa Barbara View yesterday that the Cruise Ship Ambassador Program, organized by the Santa Barbara Downtown Organization to welcome the arriving guests, received tremendous response and that all volunteer spots are likely full through summer. Hospitality tents are set-up all around the Waterfront.
