“Malta is a growing cruise destination and its Unesco World Heritage capital is a real gem of a city. Delegates will not only have the chance to immerse themselves in this beautiful and historic cruise port with this special Cruise360 event, they will also be able to visit up to three luxury cruise ships and hear from experts both inside and outside the industry.”
