A MADE-TO-MEASURE CALL FOR CRUISE PASSENGERS

Each year, the port of Saint-Malo, the undisputed leader of the Breton ports on the cruise market, hosts between 21 and 43 calls (one to two days in Saint-Malo). 4 ships can be accommodated at the same time (up to 250 m at mooring buoys, less than 150 m at dock).

On arrival at “gare maritime de la Bourse” or “Quai Vauban”, at the foot of the ramparts of Saint-Malo, cruise passengers choose their excursions or visits: Le Mont-Saint-Michel, the intramuros and the ramparts, visits of « Malouinières », gourmet getaways, Dinard, Dinan…

Cruise passengers are primarily American (about 55%), German (about 30%) and English (about 10%). This international clientele usually has a high budget and original excursion desires, also the port is constantly trying to improve the services of reception and to develop the tourist visits.

In charge of the coordination of the reception of the cruise ships and the promotion of the destination with the cruise companies, the port of Saint-Malo has constituted a strong network of partners to ensure a high level of reception on an international market very competitive: the tourist office of Saint-Malo, the Brittany region, the Regional Committee of Tourism of Brittany, shipping agencies, tour operators, taxis, etc.
