Malta continues to receive high ratings
Investments continue through the Valletta harbour area to ensure that the service offer remains fresh. Cooperation between the various stakeholders, most notably Valletta Cruise Port’s teamwork with agents, Transport Malta, the Malta Tourism Authority, the Malta International Airport and the Maltese Government, ensures a guaranteed response time combined with competitive pricing. This synergy allows everyone to respond efficiently to the most challenging situations. In line with this, Malta has consistently received the highest ratings from guests and the maritime industry.
More recently Valletta Cruise Port has commissioned a study to analyse the contribution of the cruise industry to the revenue of the Maltese Government and to the Maltese economy. This study is currently being concluded.
Laguna Marina, a small 37-berth marina in the Valletta Waterfront lagoon, was inaugurated in summer 2013. It is located close to the quays and is able to accommodate lengths from 8m to 15m. The project has been shortlisted as an exemplar project as part of the AJ Buildings Library. Other real estate developments in the pipeline include the restoration of the Old Power House, Malta’s first power station, which is located just opposite the quays, as well as the refit of a number of historic vaults overlooking the port to be used as office space.
