The cruise tourism season gets under way in the ports of the Costa Brava with the presence of new cruise ship operators

The cruise tourism season began in the ports of the Costa Brava (Palamós and Roses) with the arrival of new cruise ship operators and a greater number of ports of call and passengers.

Palamós port forecasts the arrival of 36 cruise ships and approximately 31,500 passengers, increasing stays by 38% in respect of 2012. 11 European and American cruise ships will visit the port for the first time. Meanwhile, for the second year running, Roses port strengthens its position as the Costa Brava’s second most important cruise port with the arrival of 7 cruise ships and some 1,300 passengers over the course of six months.

Catalan institutions are playing an important role in promoting cruise ship traffic in Catalan ports thanks to the activity that they are carrying out in the main forums of the cruise ship industry all over the world. The Costa Brava Cruise Ports brand is the result of the efforts of Ports of the Catalan Government, the Costa Brava Girona Tourist Board, the town councils of Roses and Palamós and the chambers of commerce of Girona and Palamós to promote Roses and Palamós ports and tourist destinations in a sector that will experience growth in the Mediterranean.
