Cruise ships in port in Quebec City - who'd have thought? I wasn't aware that Quebec City was a cruise ship destination, but it certainly is. There are up to 6 cruise ships a week docking there. And just like in more likely cruise ship destinations, the passengers disembark and flood the local area invading the restaurants, gift shops and local historical sites. It's a huge boost for the local economy, but it sure raises the "stakes" when trying to get a restaurant for a meal or getting around the old city.
