Cruise Ships

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

 Passenger terminal

 Attractive discounts on Port tariffs

 Exclusive access via the outer Port

 Available moorings

 Easy mooring operations

 Quick and easy administrative procedures

 Parking and waiting area for buses

  Possibility of a shuttle to the city centre

 

 

Transverse commitment

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:
 

 Tarragona City Council Tourist Board
 

  Reus City Council Tourist Board
 

  Costa Daurada Council Tourist Board
 

  Tarragona Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Navigation
 

 Rovira i Virgili University
 

 PortAventura World
 

 Port Aventura

 

The Tarragona Cruise Port Costa Daurada brand was set up in 2013.
