By implementing this label locally in your city, you assist and boost the relationship between Cruise Tourism & Commerce : it’s a win-win situation.

Why become a Cruise Friendly destination ?

  • The Cruise Friendly certification aims to stimulate the knock-on effect of the cruise sector on the economic development of your territory.
  • Its purpose is to accompany local stakeholders and shopkeepers in welcoming the cruise clientele, guarantee a quality gold standard, enhance certain shopping streets, drive and channel passenger flows to these relevant areas and to Charter partners (restaurants, shops, museums..).
  • Overall, secure loyalty of the cruise guests (and by extension the cruise lines’ calls in your port) by raising the satisfaction level of your destination.
  • Not forgetting that by providing this exceptional experience ashore, it encourages passengers to plan a future sojourn in your destination for a longer stay. Keep in mind that the cruise passenger is not only an ambassador but a future tourist !
