AIDA Cruises’ AIDAcara berthed in Palamós, Baix Empordà for the first time at the end of September, bringing 1,135 passengers to the Spanish port.

Arriving at 10am from Spain’s Port of Valencia, AIDAcara remained in port all day, allowing her guests to visit the town of Palamós, the Jewish quarter of Girona, Besalú, the medieval villages of Pals and Peratallada, Tossa de Mar, the Dalí Museum in Figueres and the Gala Dalí Castle in Púbol. The vessel departed at 7:30pm for the port of Mahon in Menorca.

“The arrival of AIDA Cruises at Palamós is the result of the promotional effort made by the institutions grouped in Costa Brava Cruise Ports on the main cruise forums, with the goal of attracting new lines, more calls and more passengers,” said the port in a press release.

AIDAcara was the fifth and final cruise vessel to call at Palamós in September. Other visitors included Seabourn Encore and SeaDream Yacht Club’s Seadream I, which both made one call, as well as Marella Cruises’ Marella Dream, which docked at the port twice. Together, the ships brought a total of almost 5,000 passengers to Palamós.
