Port of Valletta bags yet another award
For the fourth consecutive year Valletta Cruise Port has been named as the Best Turnaround Port Operator 2014 by Cruise Insight. This award recognises the impeccable service delivered by the port, and the continued development of its facilities in the last years.
“It is our pleasure to be receiving such an award. Valletta Cruise Port is constantly striving to excel in its service delivery and raise the bar year on year,” commented Valletta Cruise Port’s CEO Stephen Xuereb.
Valletta Cruise Port representatives along with other stakeholders were attending Cruise Shipping Miami 2015, the cruise industry’s most authoritative professional showcase. High passenger satisfaction ratings and recognition of Valletta’s value-based port services and facilities were highlighted by all levels of senior management within the cruise lines.
Stephen Xuereb of Valletta Cruise Port said the Grand Harbour has become one of the most important cruise ports in Europe.
He said: ‘The key drivers in this business are location, location and location. We are in the middle of the Mediterranean.
‘This aspect can be both an advantage and a disadvantage, but it mostly works to our advantage.
‘We also benefit from the fact that the cruise lines are berthing at the destination itself.
‘The unique natural beauty of the Grand Harbour, including our dedicated passenger terminal, is another plus considering that in other destinations ships are often berthed in commercial ports.
‘The Maltese economy at large is the greatest beneficiary of the unparalleled growth that the Valletta Cruise Port is experiencing.
‘In fact, in 2014 the cruise business contributed €82 million to the Maltese economy, of which €26 million were in the form of direct and indirect taxes’.
