September means bigger cruise ships in Bar Harbor



BAR HARBOR — Cruise ships continue to arrive at a steady clip through the fall. Larger ships visit in the fall, when the town’s daily passenger cap goes up to 5,500 passengers per day. In the summer, when more land-based visitors are in town, the cap is 3,500.

Three ships will be on their “maiden voyages,” or first trips to Bar Harbor. They are Star Pride set to arrive September 6, Silver Spirit on September 28, and Silver Wind on October 23.
