Sea Cruise Association Expects Less Passengers this Year

cruiseThe Association of Cruise Shipowners and Shipping Agencies met with Greek Shipping and Island Policy Minister Theodore Dritsas and discussed developments in the port of Piraeus ahead of the summer season and government initiatives regarding migrants and refugees temporarily accommodated in the port’s passenger terminals.
Association members said that sea cruise reservations were down for this summer, with Theodore Kontes, president of the Association speaking to ANA-MPA stressing that some companies, such as AIDA, cancelled their arrivals to Greece — following the terrorist attacks in Turkey — and turned to western Mediterranean destinations. He noted that Greece will have around 350-400,000 less sea cruise passengers this year compared with 2015.
Kontes said the sea cruise companies asked for better docking facilities in the port of Santorini.
