Malaga Port is registering an increase in cruise activity and it will see six ships dock at its facilities this August.

This increase in movements follows the decision of the Windstar Cruises shipping company to make three stops in the city, and two of them will be with one of the largest sailboats in the world.

Windstar is a cruise company with a long history in Malaga. On 12 and 20 August their ship Wind Surf will dock in the city. It is a spectacular five-masted sailboat, considered one of the largest in the world in its category, and can carry 312 passengers.

In addition, on 21 August, the Star Legend, belonging to the same shipping company, will visit the city. The 135-metre-long ship, with a maximum capacity of 212 passengers, will spend one night in port so that cruise passengers will be able to enjoy two days in the capital of the Costa del Sol

These operations are in addition to those already scheduled by Aida Cruises, two with the ship Aida Perla, on 10 and 24 August, and one more with the Aida Stella, which is scheduled to arrive on 23 August.
