New Bedford Loves Cruise Ships

New Bedford has the sights passengers want and the services cruise ships need. 

We want you to enjoy your visit to America’s #1 Fishing Port and the city of New Bedford. Our deep-water port thrives with plenty of history and modern day activity. It's an authentic New England Seaport that mixes work and play brilliantly!

There is so much to see and do, from visiting the world’s largest whaling museum to eating the world’s freshest seafood (try our scallops!). The historic downtown district features a variety of ethnic restaurants, galleries and key attractions. (Right now we're renovating our waterfront access area so please pardon our appearance!)

If you can't find what you are looking for, please don't hesitate to call our crew at the New Bedford Port Authority(NBPA) at (508) 961- 3000 or email NBPA@newbedford-ma.gov
