Port Tarragona welcomes the MSC Bellissima
17.07.2022 Port Tarragona welcomes the MSC Bellissima

This is the largest cruise ship ever to enter the Port of Tarragona.

It is the first of nine MSC Cruises stopovers planned for 2022.

This Sunday July 17 at 7 am the cruise liner MSC Bellíssima belonging to MSC Cruises docked at the new Baleares Wharf in the Port of Tarragona. With a length of 315 metres, a 171,589 gross tonnage and a capacity for 5,686 passengers, it is the largest cruise ship ever to call at the Port of Tarragona.

Representatives of the Tarragona Port Authority led by Núria Obiols, Director of Port Operations, presented a commemorative metope of this first arrival in Port Tarragona waters to the ship's captain, Roberto Leotta, and his crew. The event was also attended by Alba Colet from Global Ports Holding, Montse Royo from Bergé Marítima, Eugenia Mendoza from Lantimar, and representatives of MSC.

The vessel’s call in Tarragona involved the embarkation and partial disembarkation of approximately 408 passengers and 433 passengers respectively and lasted for just over 13 hours, from 7 am to 8 pm, when the Bellíssima set sail from the Balears Wharf.

This was the first of the nine calls the cruise company will make in Tarragona this year. Eight more stopovers are planned for 2022, plus the call by the cruise liner MSC Magnifica, which was already scheduled for November 11.

The MSC Bellíssima arrived in Tarragona from Valencia. From here it set sail for Genoa, from where it was to continue to the Italian ports of Livorno and Naples. The vessel will call at Tarragona on Sundays 31 July, 21 August, 4 and 25 September, and 9, 16 and 23 October.
