After years of decreasing traffic in the port of Alcúdia, in 2021 coal is no longer among the goods embarked and/or disembarked in the port.
A delegation from the Balearic Islands, headed by the chairman of the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB), Francesc Triay and composed of various cruise ship agents and representatives of tourism from Ibiza, was present at the Seatrade Cruise Shipping Convention in Miami, from 11 to 13 March, to promote the Balearic ports as some of the most solid destinations in the Mediterranean. The primary objective of the representatives from the islands was to attract more cruising activity during the winter season, as the prospects for high season are already very good. In this regard, the APB managed to set up contacts with Royal Caribbean for a cruise from this company to make a stopover in Palma over the next winter season. In addition, the delegation entered into negotiations with AIDA Cruises to make Palma a permanent centre for the company's operations in the Mediterranean
