Valletta Awarded as Best Port of Call Global

Ambience in Valletta

Valletta Cruise Port has been chosen as the Best Port of Call Global by Spanish-speaking cruisers, according to a press release.

This honor has been announced during FITUR Madrid 2023 in January.

“In 2022 Valletta Cruise Port welcomed over 529,000 passenger movements with 35,000 passenger movements coming specifically from Spain not to mention other Spanish-speaking guests hailing from other countries,” said Stephen Xuereb, COO of Global Ports Holding and CEO of Valletta Cruise Port.

“It is indeed a pleasure to see our guests recognizing Valletta Cruise Port’s efforts together with those of other key stakeholders in making their visit to our city a memorable experience. As part of the Global Ports Holding network our trajectory is not only one of growth, but one of ensuring operational excellence.”

The honor comes as the result of an international survey conducted on cruise satisfaction by Spanish-speaking cruise travelers. The participants had the chance to vote for their favorite cruise line, ship and port experiences during the previous year as well as their reasons for these votes.

To ensure objectivity in the survey and clean results, the voting process was independently supervised by consulting firm We-iN. The company participated in the voting, selection of the finalists and proclamation of the winners.
