Port of Barcelona: ready to recovering Cruise operators

Port of Barcelona is ready to recovering Cruise operators

The Port of Barcelona is intensifying its cooperation with cruise operators to resume activity.

Over the nest few days, The Port of Barcelona is working to resume activity in the coming weeks, once the Procicat ( Catalan Territorial Civil Protection Plan) has approved the Sectorial Plan for cruise activities in the Ports of Catalonia, which incorporates health protocols that must be adhered to by all cruise ships calling at Catalan ports. This authorization by Procicat of the protocols on which the Port of Barcelona and the shipping companies have been working in recent months marks the start of the countdown to the return of cruise ships to the Port of Barcelona this summer.

The stoppage of all cruise activity since the mid-March 2020, has provided an opportunity not only to work towards the resumption of cruises after the pandemic but also to assess the externalities of this activity in the destination cities and to work to minimize them in order to achieve more environmentally, economically and socially sustainable cruise tourism.

The cruise sector directly employs more than 9,000 people in Barcelona. The annual turnover in Catalonia in €1.083 billion and its contribution to Catalan GDP is €562 million.
