Minister Vijay Daryanani has welcomed the Sky Princess cruise ship on its inaugural visit to Gibraltar. Built in Italy and delivered to Princess Cruises on October 15, the Sky Princess is on its maiden cruise, carrying 3,600 passengers and 1,400 crew. The voyage began in Athens and ends in Rome on November 3.
“The Government is committed to boosting our cruise business,” Tourism Minister Daryanani said. “I have already made contact with many of the main players in the cruise industry and I’m looking forward to meeting them in person in the near future.”
The Sky Princess is being marketed to an international audience although over half of the passengers on this first cruise are from North America.
