Partial view from the upper deck of the ship.

Nineteen historical 250 year old sumptuous warehouses, built by Grand Master Pinto at the height of the baroque period in Malta ... stretching along the water’s edge and the historical Quay Wall where the Knights of St John and European merchants used to unload their wares … the impregnable Old Power Station that serves as a testimony to the eclectic and heroic history of the Grand Harbour ... the Forni Stores, dating back to 1626 and constructed by Grand Master de Vilhena ... have now been majestically restored and provide a complete mix of retail, dining and leisure experiences.
All this comes with an added bonus – the majestic setting within the Grand Harbour, a natural deep water port, for many thousand of years the epicentre of Malta’s maritime activity, a truly exceptional and outstanding backdrop.
This harmonious blend between the past and present has made the Valletta Waterfront become one of the most sought out destinations for locals, tourists and visiting cruise passengers and crews.

Whether you are looking for a dining experience, shopping or simply a relaxing walk along the promenade, the Valletta Waterfront has something for all your senses.
