Cruises departing from Tarragona

The port of Tarragona is one of the most important seaports in the Mediterranean. It is true that a large part of its activity is related to industrial or freight transport. However, it is also a nautical port and has activity with cruise ships. The options may not be as many as in other Spanish or Mediterranean ports in general, but we can find very interesting crossings, especially through one of the most tourist areas as far as the world of cruise ships is concerned, the Western Mediterranean.

If we review some of the routes departing from Tarragona, we find such interesting crossings as the Spain, Italy, France, Portugal and Gibraltar Cruise . It is an 11-day route organized by Costa Cruises aboard its brand new Costa Fascinosa.

A longer than average cruise that will allow us a spectacular cruise that we will never forget. A tour that will bring us closer to ports of call such as Savona (Italy), Marseille (France), Malaga, Cádiz (Spain), Lisbon (Portugal), Gibraltar (England) and Valencia.

In this journey you have a day of navigation and lots of nights to fully enjoy the boat; The Costa Fascinosa is one of the most glamorous and elegant ships of the shipping company.

There are more options and with shorter routes, for those who need a cruise less days. Thus, we can highlight the cruise ship Spain, Balearic Islands, Malta and Italy of Costa Cruises with departure in Tarragona.

This journey is 8 days aboard the Pacific Coast, another of the great ships of the shipping company. An interesting route that will allow us to discover impressive landscapes in the most tourist ports of call in the Mediterranean such as Palma de Mallorca (Spain), La Valletta (Malta), Catania (Sicily), Civitavecchia (Rome), Genoa (Italy) and Barcelona.

As for the Pacific Coast, we can say that it is a very festive ship full of color and luminosity, something that will give dynamism and life to our trip. Panoramic elevators that let us see absolutely everything, glass ceilings that connect us with the sky and stunning restaurants such as the Degli Argentieri, on two floors with a balustrade and decorated with 139 artistic pieces of silver.

If you are in love with Italy, and you have a few more days, a most interesting cruise is that of the Cruise Spain, Balearic Islands and Italy . With a total of 12 days, tourists can stay on the beautiful Victoria Coast.

During the 12 days of the tour, the ship will approach the most emblematic cities of this area of ​​the Mediterranean; Ibiza (Spain), Palma de Mallorca (Spain), Mahón (Menorca / Spain), Cagliari (Sardinia), Olbia (Sardinia), Naples (Italy), Portoferraio (Italy), Savona (Italy) and Toulon (France).

A tour full of tourist visits and delicious cuisine of the area, but also a tour that stands out for the ship itself; and it is that the Victoria Coast is a beautiful ship, even more beautiful thanks to an intervention of high engineering. A renovated ship to which a large number of exterior cabins have been added as well as common areas such as the buffet terrace or two panoramic walks.

As we can see, there is a lot of variety in terms of cruise days. However, if we look for something much shorter, we also have 4-day cruise options, such as the Spain, France and Italy cruise aboard the Costa Magica .

Four days are more than enough to get drunk on the wonderful Mediterranean scales. Thus, this route includes places like Marseille (France), Savona (Italy) and Barcelona. Four days full of excursions and fun aboard a very interesting ship.

The Magic Coast is a spectacular ship. All its common areas are inspired by the most beautiful towns in Italy. Yes, traveling aboard the Costa Magica is like being in Portofino, Costa Smeralda, Maratea or Bellagio.

It is difficult to highlight something about this ship, but we can talk about the Great Bar Salento, a suggestive bar with stained glass on both sides that allows us to have a panoramic view of a heart attack. Likewise, it is also possible to highlight the exterior bridges of several floors, very cozy and with more views of those that relax us instantly.


I have been passionate about cruising for many years. My first cruise was a Royal Caribbean on Liberty of the Seas. Many others have followed since then, now also with our children. Cruiselines I traveled with entail Royal Caribbean, Costa Crociere, MSC, Mein Schiff (tui cruises) and Norwegian Cruise Line as well as a one-week river cruise from St. Petersburg to Vologda and back in Russia. Hope you enjoy this blog and get some practical hints! Feel free to leave any comments and contact me. Keep on cruising! Markus
