Las Palmas de Gran Canaria continues to experience its high cruise season, as the leading port in Spain in this sector during the autumn and winter. Up to half a dozen ships will call again in the city in the second half of January, in a month with a lot of activity at the Santa Catalina Quay, according to the forecasts of the Port of Las Palmas and the city’s Tourist Observatory.
Thus, on Sunday 15 January, the passengers of the Azura (of P&O Cruises, consigned by Hamilton & Cía) and La Belle des Oceans (of CroisiEurope, also consigned by Hamilton & Cía) will arrive in the city.
Between Sunday 15th and Monday 16th, the Vasco de Gama (from Mystic Cruises, shipped in the city by Hamilton & Cía) is also scheduled to arrive on a stopover at Puerto Base (embarkation and disembarkation of passengers).
On Wednesday 18 January, the AIDAnova (of AIDA, chartered by Pérez & Cía) is expected. Another AIDA, the AIDAsol, will dock the following day, Thursday 19 January, together with the Mein Schiff 4 (of TUI Cruises, shipped by Hamilton & Cía). All of these are also homeport calls.
On Friday the 20 January, the Marella Explorer will return to the capital of Gran Canaria, on a date on which the Norwegian Sun (from Norwegian Cruise Line, also shipped by Intercruises) will also return to Santa Catalina.
And on Saturday 21 January a new arrival is scheduled for La Belle des Oceans and the Spirit of Adventure (from Saga, shipped by Pérez & Cía).
The cruise ships will not return to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria until Tuesday 24th January, with the Iona (from P&O Cruises, shipped by Hamilton & Cía). However, there will be calls during the following three days at the dock.
That is, on Wednesday 25th, the AIDAnova and the Vasco de Gama are scheduled to call; on the 26th, the AIDAsol; and on the 27th, the Marella Explorer and the Azura. All of them are recurrent ships in the city during the month of January. These cruise ships will close January in the city, still in the middle of the high season.
