Cruise line ratings received for the Port of Valletta reveal scores which indeed exceed the standards set by the lines.

This year Valletta Cruise Port unveiled a new stand which is clean and contemporary, while using striking imagery representative of the Maltese Islands.

During this trade fair, the new cruise casino regulations to incentivise lines to overnight in Malta and visit Gozo as part of their Mediterranean itinerary were launched. Feedback from cruise lines has been positive.
