Piraeus Port Authority recently hosted the Association of Mediterranean Cruise Ports' 111th Med Cruise board of directors meeting at its headquarters in Piraeus, Greece.
The meeting included discussions with Cruise Lines
International Association (CLIA) representatives.
The Port of Piraeus, which features modern and complete
service offerings for passengers, has seen a marked increase in traffic from 2015 to 2016,
which it attributes to its cooperation with Carnival Corporation.
The port saw an increase of 113,000 cruise passengers in 2016, a 10 percent
hike from 2015 figures, in addition to a 24 percent increase in home port
traffic. This positions Piraeus, and the Aegean Sea as a whole, as a thriving
area within the more uncertain eastern Mediterranean region.
The meeting included a working lunch with CLIA officials. CLIA Secretary General
Tom Fecke and CLIA Europe President K. Anastasiadis joined board members to
discuss how the Mediterranean cruise industry can benefit from common
