THE PORT of Alicante has welcomed a new visitor to the growing cruise ship destination.

With 800 passengers on board, the MS Sirenia belonging to Oceania Cruises arrived in port and allowed over 700 travellers to disembark and spend the day in the city shopping and sightseeing.  It was estimated that 70 per cent of those stayed within Alicante whereas the remainder took the opportunity to go on private or organised trips a little further afield.

The company that manages the comings and goings of the cruise ships in Alicante is forecasting 53 arrivals during 2017 bring with them 100,000 passengers.

The next cruise ship is due in Alicante on Wednesday August 23.
