Gibraltar Minister for Business, Tourism, Transport and the Port Vijay Daryanani exchanged plaques with the ships’ respective captains at the cruise terminal.
Daryanani said, ‘I am delighted to see that the inaugurals keep coming. This allows us to promote the success of our port and our popularity as a cruising destination.
‘Over the last few weeks, while I have been marketing Gibraltar abroad, people have seen all these inaugurals in the cruise press worldwide and have engaged with me about what we have planned for the coming years.
‘This proves that our marketing is paying dividends and we will continue pushing our brand over the coming months.’
