How do you think of the challenges for crasise lines in Greece?

Developing the cruise industry and making Greece a major maritime tourist destination are strategic priorities for Greece.So the plan to increase the number of domestic ports across the country to improve our infrastructure and equipment we have upgraded products and paved the way for investment is the first step.

 

Thanasis Theocharopoulos, Greece's tourism minister, estimates that the number of cruise passengers travelling to Greece is expected to increase by 7 per cent this year alone, and that the immediate challenges are likely to be more pronounced until improvements in infrastructure become a reality.

"Our goal is to make our ports more attractive to cruise operators from an infrastructure point of view so that Greece can take full advantage of the huge potential of the cruise industry and increase its contribution to the country's economic growth," he said.

Disney cruises is at the forefront of the challenge.It opens a 9-12 night route connecting the marquee Aegean port in the Aegean sea with the Venice and Adriatic seas.MSC will add a fifth ship in the East Med, increasing its available capacity by 26.4 per cent.Another ship will be deployed by MSC in 2020 to further increase fuel capacity by 25%.

The extra capacity cannot be dispersed to smaller but equally attractive destinations that are not yet ready to cruise.Increasing passenger traffic will put further pressure on existing infrastructure at traditional ports of call,

Paul Britton, manager of maritime operations, ports and itinerary planning at Disney Cruise Lines, said: "it is regrettable that Disney ships can only call at six ports in Greece."It will return to Greece this year, with ports including Piraeus, Santorini, Mykonos and Katakolo.

The challenges for crusise lines in Greece"We need to have the right facilities and infrastructure to serve and cater to our large vessels," added MSC Cruises.

The Greek government is aware of the challenges and needs facing cruise companies and is working to address these issues to allay stakeholder concerns.
