Nearly 30.000 passengers passed through the Portimão Cruise Terminal in 2017, thus corresponding to a homologous growth of 53%. In what concerns the number of calls, 71 cruise ships were received in Portimão, corresponding to 65% over2016.


The positive results of the only Cruise Terminal in the Algarve, under the management of APS – Port of Sines and the Algarve Authority since 2014, confirms the effort that is being made, not only by the Port Authority, that has been investing in the modernization of both the infrastructures and the info-structure of the port, but also by the economic and touristic agents involved in the promotion of the Cruise Terminal, the city of Portimão and the “brand” Algarve.


Integrated in the joint promotion of the national ports, under the brand Cruise Portugal, the Port of Portimão will attend the major international cruise industry venue – the Seatrade Cruise Global, which will take place in Fort Lauderdale during next March.
