Ship ahoy
The Galeon Andalucia

MALAGA’S port will be graced by a galleon until January 7.
The vintage ship, which arrived in the city last week, will be on display at Pier One. The Galeon Andalucia is a replica of Spanish ships used between the 16th and 18th centuries. The ship has already visited Puerto Rico, the United States, the Virgin Islands, Dominican Republic and Canada.

This summer, a new cruise ship, Seabourn Encore, made its first ever trip to Malaga after visiting Gibraltar. The luxury ship measures 210 metres long, and can accommodate 640 passengers and 400 crew. The vessel, belonging to American company, Seabourn Cruise Line, was welcomed by Malaga’s Port Authority, the council’s department for tourism and company Cruceros Malaga.

The ship’s captain was also given a commemorative plaque to mark the inaugural visit at a reception held on board. The cruise liner stopped in Malaga to enjoy the city’s feria, before moving on to its next stop, Cartagena.
Another cruise, Panorama II, also stopped for a night at Malaga’s Palermal Terminal for the feria. The small, exclusive vessel, measuring 50 metres, is run by Greek company, Variety Cruises.
