Cruise Buzz live from Malta on the Disney Cruise

Welcome to Valletta, Malta

Port Buzz: Information about visiting Valletta, Malta during a cruise line port of call. Mediterranean cruise port review of Valletta, Malta.

Malta’s capital, Valletta, is situated in the middle of the Mediterranean, just 52 miles south of Sicily, yet it seems like it is a step back in time. The archipelago is located in the central Mediterranean between Sicily and the North African coast. Cruise visitors will discover cultural sites of historic significance that tell the story of Matla. For example, there are many sites related to a succession of rulers that include Romans, Moors, Knights of Saint John, French and British.
