ZADAR, 12 September 2019 – The new Gazenica-Zadar cruise port in the Dalmatian city of Zadar has been named the world’s best port at the Seatrade Cruise Awards 2019 last night in Hamburg, Germany.
Zadar beat fellow finalists, Port of OldenLoen in Norway and Port of Yokohama in Japan to win the prestigious title.
The director of the Port of Zadar Authority, Robert Skific, said the success of Gazenica should be attributed to the excellent cooperation between the Zadar port authorities, the Zadar International Port Operations concession holder and Global Ports Holding (GPH).
“Making in into the finals with only two other international ports speaks enough of our joint success. We are convinced that in the coming years this cooperation will be better and better, and that Zadar will soon take the place that it belongs in the cruise line business,,“ said Skific.
“This award, which is given by experts, makes us happy because it is confirmation that all the effort invested into this port, from Zadar County to the Port of Zadar Authority and GPH, paid off. This award motivates us to continue to work with Zadar and other ports which we manage,” said GPH CEO Emre Sayın.
