PORTLAND — Portland’s cruise ship season will begin to take shape this weekend with the arrival of a ship carrying more than 2,200 passengers.

Nicole Clegg, a spokeswoman for the city of Portland, said the Enchantment of the Seas, will arrive at the Maine State Pier at 10 a.m. Saturday.

Enchantment represents the first large cruise ship to arrive on the city’s waterfront this year, with a crew of 870 and 2,250 passengers.

Enchantment, which is a Royal Caribbean International vessel, will head north for Bar Harbor Saturday night.

The Independence, which calls Portland its home port, will also depart Saturday from the Ocean Gateway terminal with 98 passengers on its Maine coast tour. The cruise ship will visit Boothbay Harbor, Bar Harbor, Camden, Belfast, Castine and Rockland.

Clegg said 59 ships carrying a record-setting 86,099 passengers are expected to berth in Portland between June and October.
