Malta at the 2013 Cruise Shipping Miami

Malta continues to promote its cruise facilities and recently attended the annual Cruise Shipping Miami conference to showcase the destination to the major cruise lines.

In addition to warm weather, even during Europe’s  winter, savouring authentic Mediterranean cuisine while in port, open air cafés or restaurants by the sea, a place where the locals speak English & greet you with sincere familiarity, where history books have not done enough justice to heritage sites & a place where culture seeps from every stone in towns & villages, the Maltese Islands are an increasingly popular cruise destination.  Many of today’s major cruise lines including Celebrity, Sea Cloud, and Star Clippers have secured Valletta’s Grand Harbour as their port of call or turn-around port.
