#CruiseLiners - The 2018 season was successful at the ports of Swansea and Cardiff, according to port owner and operator ABP which is to further develop the cruise sector in the south Wales region throughout 2019 and beyond.
Representatives from ABP South Wales will be attending the annual SeaTrade Cruise Med event in Lisbon, Portugal starting today and tomorrow (20th September) to further promote the region's ports to the industry.
The Port of Cardiff already has several bookings for cruise vessel calls the 2019 and 2020 seasons, where passengers will either visit Wales as part of their cruise itineraries, or embark on their cruise voyages from the port.
Between May and September 2018, six cruise calls and over 4,000 passengers relied on the port facilities in Cardiff and Swansea provided by ABP South Wales.
As well as continuing to support day calls, ABP South Wales believes there is significant potential to increase the number of cruise holidays that embark in South Wales to provide greater accessibility and ease for passengers from Wales, the South West, and the Midlands.
