Sky Princess Calls in Valletta

Valletta Cruise Port has welcomed the new Sky Princess on her inaugural call.

Following its arrival into Valletta’s Grand Harbour Sky Princess’ guests and crew were welcomed ashore to the lively tunes of a traditional village band featuring a number of local favorites, along with international pieces. A traditional plaque exchange was organized aboard, with a number of local stakeholders attending the event.

Minister for Tourism Konrad Mizzi highlighted the added value created by high-end cruise line visits to Valletta.

The Minister lauded efforts to develop the Valletta Cruise Port in an all year-round operation.

Valletta Cruise Port’s CEO and Global Ports Holding COO, Stephen Xuereb commented: “We are proud to welcome the Sky Princess on her maiden call to Valletta Cruise Port just a few weeks after her debut. This call comes at a busy time for cruising in Malta, and in a year where Valletta is expected to reach a record 900,000 cruise passenger movements. On behalf of Valletta Cruise Port and Global Ports Holding, we congratulate Princess Cruises on this achievement and look forward to many more years of fruitful cooperation.”

The Sky Princess is on her inaugural season in the Mediterranean, before repositioning to Port Everglades, where she is expected to arrive on 1st December.
