The demand for cruises in Malaga is currently "crazy", one tourism commentator has revealed.
Malaga City Tourist Board and Convention Bureau's Antonio Montejo Romero said boarding a ship from the Spanish destination is growing in popularity.
Indeed, Royal Caribbean International Cruises recently announced it had bumped up the number of flights to Palma, Malaga and Barcelona at Leeds Bradford Airport for people wishing to head off on one of its Mediterranean cruises.
Mr Romero explained why boarding a cruise in Malaga, rather than Southampton, is an ideal option, stating that "cultural holidays" can be taken before and after a cruise.
"The city's moving very fast with the cruises. We have two passenger terminals, one of them was completed in 2007 and the last one two months ago," he added.
People heading on a Royal Caribbean International Cruises holiday from Leeds Bradford Airport have the choice of weekly flights throughout the summer until October.
