Cruise passengers’ gateway to the Costa Daurada
The Port of Tarragona is attaining and strengthening its position in the sector as a Port of Call for small and medium-sized cruise ships seeking differentiation and exclusivity in terms of a destination. Tarragona is an excellent destination for including in Mediterranean cruise itineraries. Thanks to its Roman archaeological legacy, Tarragona has been declared a world heritage site by UNESCO.
One of our current priorities is to develop the Port as a Homeport for cruise ship tourism, and our main goal is to be able to offer a quality service that is optimal for the requirements of the cruise companies.
A Port that is prepared
Good infrastructure and operations specialising in the arrival and departure of the cruise ships; ease of access and communication between the terminal, the city and the rest of the area, and a wide range of added value services, characterise the stay in our Port and in our city.
A dock exclusively for cruise ships
Attractive discounts on Port tariffs
Exclusive access via the outer Port
Easy mooring operations
Quick and easy administrative procedures
Parking and waiting area for buses
Free tourist information on board or at the terminal
Possibility of a shuttle to the city centre
In 2013 the cruise project went from being something purely concerning the port, and evolved into a strategy for the whole area. The cruise board was set up, led by the Port of Tarragona and made up of all the parties involved in the arrival and consolidation of the cruise industry:
The Tarragona Cruise Port Costa Daurada brand was set up in 2013.
