The port of Valletta in Malta is situated in the centre of the Mediterranean. It is flanked by Sicily, 60 miles to the north, and north Africa, 120 miles to the south. Its central location makes it ideal for east and west Mediterranean cruise itineraries.

The port of Valletta is the gateway to Malta’s rich historical and cultural experience. In Malta one finds the oldest temples in the world, UNESCO heritage sites and a vibrant Mediterranean lifestyle. Cruise lines benefit from 24/7 support services including bunkering, ship chandelling and ship-repair. In terms of facilities and passenger support services, the country enjoys an excellent reputation for its accommodation facilities, multilingual guides and tourism activities as well as wide-ranging multimodal transport services. All these factors combine to render a call in Malta a memorable experience.

Valletta Cruise Port, the private cruise and ferry terminal operator, and Transport Malta, the port authority and the Malta Tourism Authority work together to facilitate the handling of cruise vessels and passengers in the port of Valletta.

Those arriving by sea, pass through the historical Valletta Waterfront. A walk to the Baroque centre of Valletta will only take 15 minutes. Other means of transport are available to guests - all at relatively economical rates. For passengers arriving and departing by air, Malta’s International Airport is located 15 minutes away from the Port of Valletta.

The island of Gozo offers a different experience to mainland Malta. This tiny island boasts a laid back lifestyle and its eco-friendliness attracts the most discerning worldwide travellers. Expanding the itinerary to include the sister island of Gozo creates a ‘2 for 1’ bonus, ideal for overnight stays, with no additional port charges and fuel savings.
