The Intercruises Tarragona team were called upon to handle the Costa Favolosa on short notice when the ship changed its destination from Barcelona to Tarragona due to a shortage of pier space.

A massive challenge, as the Favolosa (which has a capacity of 3,000) was the largest ever ship to call to Tarragona. However, Intercruises sees opportunities where others see challenges – and in a hope to attract future cruise lines to Tarragona, the team liaised with all relevant local stakeholders, including the Port Authority, Police and Tourism Office to ensure the call was a success.

Intercruises organised a total of thirteen transfers for shore excursions, as well as nine coaches going to Barcelona and one to Montserrat.Guests who visited Tarragona had the opportunity to see various festivities and acts taking place throughout the city e.g. concerts, live music, “Castellers” (human towers).
