PRESS RELEASE – Minister Daryanani Announces Plans For New Cruise Liner Terminal

September 06, 2023

The Minister for Tourism, Hon Vijay Daryanani, has unveiled proposals for the construction of a cutting-edge cruise liner terminal. This state-of-the-art facility is set to replace the existing terminal, featuring two floors and a rooftop.

The ground floor will serve as the primary passenger area, while the first floor will be designed to accommodate events and conferences, and may include shopping units. The entire facility will span an impressive 3817 square meters.

Minster Daryanani commented, “The present terminal is looking tired, and this magnificent facility will be something Gibraltar will be proud of. It has been a long process, and a lot of time and effort has gone into this project. Gibraltar has the potential to become the most important cruise destination in the Western Mediterranean. The competition is immense and we have to improve and strive to be the best. This new facility will provide a luxurious passenger experience, in a world class environment, including improvements in the surrounding area. Gibraltar is highly respected in the cruise industry, but I want more. I want us to set a benchmark of high standards and I am sure with more hard work we can achieve this. This is not an easy job and a lot of work goes on behind the scenes. The Government is committed to the cruising industry and to helping Main Street trade. This project is the start of our ambitious vision for cruising for the next 25 years”.
