The platform, www.cruise-bordeaux.com, is aimed at maritime and river cruise professionals and meets a dual objective: to promote the "Destination Bordeaux" and to facilitate the preparation of stopovers. The tourist section of the site thus allows the shipowner to discover Bordeaux and its region, its main points of interest, ideas for pre and post cruises and the major events for 2016-2020. The technical part, for its part, provides all the information relating to the port terminals, pontoons and informs the shipowners on the procedures to be followed to organize their calls as well as possible.
The creation of this website is part of Bordeaux destination contract, in a context of constant growth in cruise tourism in Bordeaux and its region.
Led by the Bordeaux Métropole Convention and Visitors Bureau, the site was created in partnership with the Joint Syndicate for the Sustainable Development of the Gironde Estuary (SMIDDEST), Gironde Tourism, Country Medoc, Bordeaux Metropolis and Large Maritime Port of Bordeaux.
