ROCKLAND, Maine — The city is preparing for the arrival of one of the largest cruise ships to make a port call here.

The 958-foot long cruise ship, the Brilliance of the Seas, is scheduled to arrive on Sunday in Rockland.

The ship can carry up to 2,100 passengers and a crew of 929.

This will be the Brilliance of the Seas’ first visit to Rockland. The stop is part of a nine-day cruise by the Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines vessel that includes stops as far south as Boston and north to Nova Scotia.

The Penobscot Bay Regional Chamber of Commerce said in a news release that it will have an information booth and welcome area set up Sunday morning in Harbor Park and at the Village Green in Camden to greet passengers and provide information on the entire region.

A detailed walking map of downtown Rockland and Camden has been designed by Woody Emanuel of Admiral’s Buttons for distribution to the passengers, the Chamber stated.

The ship will be anchored in Rockland Harbor off of Owls Head, and passengers will be tendered to the public landing in Rockland starting at 8 a.m. The last tender will leave at 4 p.m.

Harbor Park will be open to vehicle traffic, although the south side from in front of Fishermen’s Memorial Pier to the harbor master building will be restricted to buses and taxis for the cruise ship passengers.

The 936-foot-long MS Eurodam, which can carry up to 2,104 passengers and a crew of 929, is scheduled to stop on Sunday, Sept. 27, in Rockland. And the 965-foot Serenade of the Seas with up to 2,100 passengers and a crew of 860 is scheduled to stop on Oct. 4 and 12 in Rockland.

The largest cruise ship to make a stop in Rockland had been the 962-foot-long Jewel of the Seas in October 2009. The MS Eurodam also stopped in Rockland last year.

More than two dozen different cruise ships ranging in length from 161 feet to more than 1,132 feet were expected to bring a record 290,000 passengers to several Maine ports this year, according to data compiled in May by CruiseMaine, the state’s cruise ship marketing entity.

More than 400 visits to Maine ports were anticipated during the state’s annual cruise ship season, which is expected to last through early November. Bar Harbor, the state’s busiest cruise ship port, was scheduled to get 140 visits, which would break the record of 127 set last year, while Portland was expected to get 83 visits, which is eight more than it had scheduled in 2014.

According to CruiseMaine, Rockland was expected to have 41 ship visits this year, which would be that city’s highest-ever total, and Eastport was scheduled to host eight, besting its previous high of five.
