21-01-2016

The President of the Port Authority of Castellón, Francisco Toledo, together with the manager of the PortCastelló Foundation, have held various meetings at the State Ports stand.

PortCastelló is present at Fitur through the State Ports stand, where the president of the Port Authority of Castellón, Francisco Toledo, and the manager of the PortCastelló Foundation, Miguel Rojo, have had meetings with representitives of the sector as well as taking part in the celebration of Valencian Region Day and the International Tourism Fair.

Today’s visit takes place in the context of a series of meetings which PortCastelló is setting up in order to generate more cruise ship traffic at the Port of Castellón and make the name of the port more widely known in the sector. Port President Toledo commented; “We are working towards establishing Castellón as a prime cruise ship destination in the Mediterranean in order to boost the economy of the province and generate more jobs.”

It should be remembered that the port has been working on a strategy shared with the Valencian Tourist Agency  in order to increase cruise ship traffic to Castellón and to establish stronger collaboration with the aim of making the ports of the region more attractive to tourists. Francisco Toledo has highlighted a project designed to promote senior citizen tourism along the coast of the Valencian Region, with stops in three ports. It will be started in the low season in order to encourage a more even distribution of customers throughout the year.

Two visits by cruise ships to the Port of Castellón have already been confirmed for this year. The ships concerned are the ‘Prinsendam’, from the company ‘Holland America’, which will visit for a second time and dock on the 19th of September and the ‘Silver Cloud,’ of Silversea Cruises, a company which will be using the port for the first time and will arrive on the 21st of September.
