Ports and Docks

Standard

When on a cruise you soon learn to distinguish between docks and ports. You may “tie up” in a dock which is usually a working port. There are frequently many storage containers and cranes. Often the port will provide transport through the port to a port gate to prevent you from wandering around. As these ports are working areas they can appear very unattractive.

You may also “tie up” at a port terminal which is often more attractive. Port Terminals often have shops, duty free shopping opportunities and free WIFI often accompanied by cafes and relaxation areas.

Agadir, where we are docked today is most definitely a working port.
