Royal Caribbean has announced that it will no longer be using Malaga as its home port

Passengers numbers at Malaga port are expected to fall by around 20% in 2013 according to port authorities.
The fall in numbers is expected to be around 150,000 and is mainly due to the decision by the cruise company Royal Caribbean to stop using Malaga as its home port
It is expected that numbers will increase again in 2014 as the port authorities say they are in talks with other cruise companies
