Tarragona Expecting 25 Percent Bump in 2018

The Silver Muse in Tarragona

In Spain, Tarragona has 50 calls booked for the 2018 cruise season, up from just 40 this year, according to a port spokesperson.

This year the port will introduce interporting, which started with a call from Pullmantur’s Horizon on April 25. That will be followed by 17 visits from the Costa neoRiviera during the summer season.

“This opens a new business for Tarragona, not only as a port of call, but now as a homeport,” the spokesperson told Cruise Industry News.

Government officials are planning a new cruise berth with a larger footprint in time for the 2020 cruise season. Another growth agenda item has been attracting winter calls, but those may be few and far between in the Mediterranean.
