Cadiz is the seaport (principal ferry and cruise port) to Seville/Sevilla - the capital and biggest city of Andalusia (Spanish autonomous territory). Seville City is on River Guadalquivir and has population around 700,000 (metro around 1,5 million), ranking it Spain's 4th-largest. Seville Harbor is Spain's only river port.

Port Cadiz (locodde ESCAD) has been the principal homeport for the Spanish Navy since the accession of the House of Bourbon (Frankish royal house) in Spain in the 18th-century.

In July 2022, MSC Cruises announced that in 2023 will add Cadiz as a homeport/turnaround port for its liners.

The shipyard also has 2 of Spain's largest gantry cranes. Navantia’s shipyards specialize in construction of warships and other ocean-going vessels, including patrol ships, large military ships, also special vessels (survey, support, etc). Navantia also specializes in ship repairs and refits/modernizations. Navantia shipyards provide services to both military and civilian vessels. The company is ranked Europe's 5th largest shipbuilder and the world's 9th largest. Besides Cadiz, Navantia also owns and operates other shipyards all over Spain.

Bay of Cadiz is also home to Navantia’s factory developing combat systems, weapons, vessel control systems, maritime security systems and other products. Navantia's ship-repair services range from regular repairs (maintenance works) to refurbishments and refits/conversions. The company has all the required facilities and expertise for complex ship repair works, including on LNG-powered vessels and large cruise liners.
