New Royal Caribbean cruise terminal in Ravenna, Italy’s 6th largest port, in 2024  

By Sunday, 26 September 2021 16:36

The cruise line’s new Ravenna terminal, which will be operational from 2024, will be able to handle a flow of 300,000 passengers a year. RCL Cruises, part of the Royal Caribbean group, has been awarded the European tender for the concession of this maritime terminal and the construction of the new cruise facility.

A sustainable state-of-the-art Port Hub with quality services

This is an important step in Royal Caribbean’s plans for a new range of options in the Adriatic and throughout the Mediterranean. The regeneration of the Ravenna cruise port is part of the Port Hub, which, thanks to an extensive dredging of the access channel and the north outer port, will make access possible for a greater number of ships. "We are really excited about this extraordinary opportunity,” said Vice President of Destination Development Joshua Carroll. “It will allow us to create a project at the forefront of quality of services, sustainability and harmonization with the environment, thanks to our know-how and experience, which has always been dedicated to hospitality. "

A new multi-functional Dunes Park

The terminal complex will be part of the new Dunes Park to be built by Ravenna’s port authority. This will turn Ravenna into a real homeport - a starting and ending point for cruises and not just a transit point - with the spin-off for pre and post-cruise stays also thanks to the collaboration with the airports of Bologna, Forlì and Rimini.

Green areas and cycle-pedestrian paths

The area, covering a total area of ​​12 hectares, will have public green spaces and cycle-pedestrian paths as well as  range of services supporting the cruise terminal area. There will be an electrification system for the docks to ensure environmental sustainability in the management of the terminal, allowing parked ships to turn off their engines and run on electricity.  The investment for the terminal will amount to some €28 million, of which just under 6 million will be borne by the port authority itself. The concession will have a duration of 33 years.
