MSC Cruises has acquired a significant interest in Trieste Adriatic Marine Initiatives S.r.l. (TAMI), a strategic holding company of the cruise terminal Trieste Terminal Passeggeri (TTP) in Trieste, Italy.

Following the investment, MSC will develop homeporting operations in Trieste, starting in the summer of 2020. Located in northeast Italy, the port city is situated towards the end of a narrow strip of Italian territory lying between the Adriatic Sea and Slovenia.

According to the Swiss-based cruise company, the acquisition supports its “long-standing objective of providing enhanced and seamless experiences for cruise guests right from the point of embarkation onwards.” 

Trieste Terminal Passeggeri S.p.A. manages the Maritime Station of Trieste (Warehouses 41 and 42), which is situated in the heart of the city of Trieste, just a few steps from the central square, Piazza dell’Unità d’Italia. The Maritime Station is made up of an outdoor area of 9,900 square meters and offers two berths that can accommodate two modern cruise vessels for the operations of homeport.
