The ports of Palamós and Roses resume their activity, scheduling eight autumn cruises.
Cruise operations are resuming on the Costa Brava after a year and a half of inactivity due to the pandemic. This autumn, the ports of Palamós and Roses have programmed eight cruise calls, albeit with the number of passengers yet to be decided given the restrictions limiting group sizes during the pandemic. On 12 October the cruise ship Marella Explorer 2 docked at the port of Palamós with 600 passengers, 33% of its capacity.
Girona’s ports and the destination have worked diligently to implement health and safety protocols and measures in order to welcome cruise ships, passengers and crew while the pandemic continues. It is worth noting that in 2019 the Costa Brava broke records with the arrival of 56,700 passengers between Palamós and Roses, with a total number of 50 calls at the ports.
During the year-and-a-half stoppage, out of respect and empathy for the cruise sector, the Costa Brava Cruise Ports brand continued its promotional activity at physical and online trade fairs and forums, its meetings with shipping companies and tour operators, and it is currently preparing the 2022 Medcruise Assembly on the Costa Brava.
