The Ocean Gateway terminal in Portland, Maine was built primarily to accommodate the increasing number of cruise ships that are coming to Portland each year. It is owned by the City of Portland and the facility is also available to be rented for occasions such as weddings, auctions and other events that people may want to have take place. The view from the facility offers a one-of-a-kind look at the Portland waterfront and the eastern prom.
We were invited to participate at a frontline training session on June 14, 2012 and what a great time we had. Staff from many of the local hotels, restaurants and other businesses came to Ocean Gateway to learn about all the different opportunities that visitors to Portland have when they are here. This facility is a perfect setting to hold a large event like this and the several hundred frontline staff that came were able to see first hand just how much there is to do in Portland, Maine. Many of the local businesses were present with booths displaying what they offer and we were right there with them! The photos are views from Ocean Gateway
