Handling crocieristi records of 142 ships from cruise and approximately 280 thousand

In the 2012 ports of the Sardinia North of Olbia, Golfo Aranci and Porto Torres, against a consisting bending of the traffic of the goods caused from the economic recession that has had an important impact negative also on the flow of the passengers of the ferries, have recorded a remarkable increment of the crocieristico traffic. This year, from 27 March today, day that concludes the crocieristica season 2012 with the departure to the hours 18 from the port to Olbia of the ship Albatross of the German group Phoenix Reisen, the three ports of call have enlivened a traffic crocieristi records of 142 ships from cruise and approximately 280 thousand, figures both double regarding the 71 landings place of ships and 141,632 passengers of 2011.

"In spite of the light bending of the market to international level - it has emphasized the Harbour Authority of the Sardinia North - the ports of call of the Sardinia North are successful to carry to house turned out amazing. In particular Porto Torres that, by hardly three ships of 2011, is passed to 46 (43 of the group Iberocruceros and three of the luxurious Seabourn) and Golfo Aranci, for the first time with six ports of call in calendar, shared between the exclusive companies Seadream Yacht club, Companies du Ponant and Hapag- Lloyd Cruises. In increase also the port of Olbia, that it closes with a healthy season: 90 fleeting ships and approximately 200 thousand, and an income of overbearingness in the market of the mega one ships with 15 ports of call of Costa Serena, 290 meters and 3,780 passengers (more 1,100 members of the crew) and four of the Carnival Breeze, 306 meters, 4,724 passengers (more 1,386 people of the crew). Numerous also the confirmations of the historical companies: from Thomson to Aida Cruise, the Island Cruise to the Croisieres de France, passing for Azamara and Mano Maritime. Groups that, every year - it has evidenced the harbour agency - continue to maintain to competitive weever and the portualità of the Sardinia North in the market of the cruises".

"What we go to conclude today - has commented the president of the Harbour Authority, Paolo Piro - has been a year record for our ports of call. In spite of the crisis and the bound initial bending to the incident of the Concord, the market of the Mediterranean has reacted well, giving great numbers. Once again we confirm ourselves in good position in classifies of the portualità Italian, even if, are sure, the three ports of Olbia, Golfo Aranci and Porto Torres can still grow, improving, meanwhile, their offer is in infrastructural terms that hiking". Remembering the infrastructural participations in program in order to allow an ulterior development of the crocieristico traffic, Piro has evidenced that "draft of works more rinviabili in order not to guarantee the full functionality of our ports, participations that the companies demand constantly, pain the cancellation from the routes".

Piro has rimarcato also the profuse engagement from the three communal administrations of Olbia, Golfo Aranci and Porto Torres, from the two Provinces and the operators and the shopkeepers for the acceptance of the crocieristi: "2012 - it has explained - have been also the year of the carried out one towards a more mature approach and aware in it confronts of the crocierista. To Porto Torres the community, the world of the voluntary service, the tourist operators and the traders have set foot in a lively strategy of acceptance and without precedence. Informative banquets, cupboards, smiles and a page facebook dedicated to the visitors overseas have even animated, without never to desist, all the eight months. Equally decided it has been the answer of the traders of Olbia, that they have known to cuddle, also in the festive days and between the thousand difficulties of the crisis, the hundreds of thousands of crocieristi in visit. I can still confirm that we are on the just road and that the job carried out from all has given its yields in terms of fallen back economic and, more, can in the next future carry to a profitable return of overseas image".

For 2013 a crocieristico traffic online with that of this year is previewed. "Waiting for the closing of the calendar, previewed for the March month - it has specified Piro - we have already exceeded the one hundred ports of call, to which, they are sure, they will join other reservations in the next few months, than they will bring back to us to the numbers of the season as soon as closed".
