Toulon, Port of the year finalist for the Seatrade Insider Cruise Awards.

Wednesday 05 March 2014

Thanks to significant improvements of its facilities and services, Toulon has been chosen amongst the 3 finalists for the "port of the year 2013" Cruise Insider Award.

Among those improvements :

  • A Shuttle boat service between Toulon and La Seyne (the 2 cruise terminals are in the bay) deeply upgrading the quality level at the port and an important source of extra revenues for cruise line operators.

  • The Cruise Friendly label, launched in 2013,comprises a network of local partners (shops and leisure/cultural providers) committed to deliver the best welcoming experience to cruise visitors, by adapting their opening days and hours to cruise calls schedules, by paying attention to be smiley and friendly, and offering a welcome complimentary gift to cruise passengers on their visit. The purpose of this Quality label is to stand out from other destinations in order to develop cruise lines (and guests!) loyalty. By upgrading the experience during the whole day (and not only on the pier), Toulon wants to tempt cruise visitors to visit Toulon again either on board a cruise ship or by their own, for longer stays (to appoint them as ambassadors of our destination).
