The president of the Castellón Port Authority, Rafa Simó, has handed over the traditional metope to the captain of the ship, Martin Ritting, as a souvenir of his passage through the port of Castellón.
It is the second cruise that PortCastelló receives this year, after the `Bolette ‘, which landed last September. As on that occasion, the Castellón Port Authority and the entities involved have followed the security and prevention measures to attend to cruise ships in times of pandemic. Among them, maintaining a safe distance, reducing people’s physical contact and reinforcing cleaning and disinfection measures. In addition, a space has been provided to isolate and guard any suspected virus cases.
