Welcome to the Tangier cruise port guide. With 1,8 million inhabitants Tangier is a mayor city in northern Morocco. But this town is not entirely Moroccan. As soon as you travel north of Rabat you will notice there is a strong Spanish influence here. This is not that weird if you think that it is 60 km from Gibraltar and 14 km from Spain. This is the reason why you find an incredible mix of Moroccan, European and African all in this town of Tangier. After Casablanca they are also the most important industrial centre of Morocco. Things are changing fast here. The industry is diverse and focusses on textile, chemical, mechanical and naval. The city is currently undergoing a rapid development. The city is upgrades and modernised. Over the next few years you will notice that the city will get cleaner, the new cruise terminal is being build and the boulevard is being upgraded.
