BUCKSPORT, Maine (WABI) - Bucksport won’t see a cruise ship docked in town this year after all.

American Cruise Lines pulled back their request this week, but said they hope to be able to return to Maine next year.

The company had asked the town council to allow a cruise ship with passengers to dock there in September.

Citizens had voiced both support and opposition for the proposal saying that while the town could use the economic boost, there were concerns about the spread of COVID-19.
