Full Services and Facilities
Cruise ships can berth alongside both sides of the Cruise Terminal within an hour of leaving the main shipping lanes. A total quay length of 940 metres allows up to four medium sized or two large sized vessels to berth alongside simultaneously. Additional berths can be made available elsewhere in the Port if required.
The Port's attractive and efficient Cruise Terminal makes a good first impression on passengers visiting Gibraltar and has a range of facilities including telephones, bar/cafeteria, arts and craft shops, display areas and a Gibraltar Tourist Board Information office. The Cruise Terminal is situated within the restricted security zone with a visible but discreet security presence including x-ray machines and metal detectors. Harbour waters are patrolled continuously by the Gibraltar Port Authority, Ministry of Defence and the Royal Gibraltar Police Marine Section.
With over 10,000 ship calls a year, Gibraltar is a busy commercial port and a multi-service centre with plenty of experience across a diverse range of activities from bunkers, provisioning and crew changes to the supply of spare parts and repairs.
In 2011 Gibraltar bunker operators supplied 4.2 million tonnes of bunkers.
