2020-21 Schedule and Rate Structure Released – Time to Book

We are pleased to announce that our new sailing schedule and rate structure is now available for booking. Please book online at www.marineatlantic.ca or by calling 1-800-341-7981 for travel between April 1, 2020, and March 31, 2021.  

Based on customer feedback, our new corporate website provides customers with an improved online experience including an expanded crossing availability navigator, the ability to search cabin availability and wait lists, and improved mobile functionality.

This year’s schedule will continue to see two crossings per day from each port, including the popular overnight and morning crossings, as well as our Argentia crossings. During busier periods, extra capacity will be added, as required, to meet the needs of our commercial customers.


As part of our new tariff structure, the following updates will be made effective April 1:

  • No increases to passenger fares or passenger vehicle fares 
  • Commercial fares will increase by 2%
  • The drop trailer management fee will increase by 3.4%
  • $10 increase to commercial berths
  • Differential cabin pricing will be introduced (2-berth cabin prices remain the same, four-berth cabin prices increase by 10%)

Increases to our commercial tariff are designed to help us recoup a portion of our year-round operating expenses that are designated to meet the specific requirements of our commercial industry.

This year we are also introducing differential cabin pricing for 2-berth and 4-berth cabins. The 4-berth cabins will cost approximately 10% more and is designed to better target the spacing needs of customers and encourage those who only require two beds or less to book two-berth cabins.

So, go ahead, make your booking and experience all the great new things happening with our service. We look forward to welcoming you on board in the months ahead.
