GREEN BAY, WI – The passenger cruise ship Ocean Navigator is scheduled to call on the Port of Green Bay on June 14, 2023, arriving at approximately 7:00 a.m. with passengers disembarking at approximately 8 to 8:30 a.m.
Discover Green Bay, with the help of the City of Green Bay, Brown County, The Port of Green Bay, Downtown Green Bay, Inc., On Broadway Inc., and C&M Presents are excited to welcome the American Queen Voyages ship back to port after two successful visits in 2022.
"We're so pleased that passengers of the Ocean Navigator and officials from American Queen Voyages enjoyed their stop in Green Bay in 2022," said Brad Toll, President and CEO of Discover Green Bay. "We heard great feedback on the community and the convenience of landing at the Port of Green Bay and Leicht Park. Many we spoke to said Green Bay was the highlight of their trip, and we plan to have that be the case again for passengers this year."
Discover Green Bay worked closely with C&M Presents, a destination management company, on the planning and execution of the bus excursions that showcase the community for the cruise passengers. Stops on the guided city tour include the Neville Public Museum, The Automobile Gallery, Captains Walk Winery, the National Railroad Museum, and drive-by viewing of Lambeau Field.
Discover Green Bay is prepared to welcome passengers upon their arrival using the Mobile Visitor Center. Tourism representatives will be stationed at Leicht Park to offer a hospitable entry into Green Bay and share information about the community for the passengers’ afternoon free time, including visiting the Wednesday Farmers Market in the On Broadway District.
There will be security on the dock, but residents and media are invited to stop by Leicht Park for cool views of the passenger cruise ship docked.
Discover Green Bay officials will be available for comment between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. near the dock at Leicht Park in Green Bay.
The Ocean Navigator will depart the Green Bay area at 7:00 a.m. on Thursday, June 15. The ship is scheduled to make another stop in Green Bay with a new set of passengers on June 28, 2023.
