The first cruise ship arrived at the Ayia Napa Marina, a result of the mooring in the area.
In a statement issued by the Ministry of Transport, Communications and Works, it states that it is with great pleasure to welcome the passengers of the first cruise ship to the new Marina of Ayia Napa. “The decision of the Ministry of Transport, Communications and Works to create an anchorage has begun to bear fruit,” said Giannis Karousos in a written statement.
The Minister of Transport, Communications and Works Giannis Karousos also expressed joy and satisfaction for the reception of the first cruise ship in the Ayia Napa Marina. “I am very happy to see an initiative that I took years ago to give the first positive results. We have set up a restricted port area around the Ayia Napa Marina and issued a customs decree so that cruise ships can reach the Ayia Napa Marina and disembark passengers. “Our goal is to make all the Marinas of Cyprus accessible to all cruise ships”, says Mr. Karousos.
“We hope that today the arrival of the first cruise ship in the Marina of Ayia Napa will be the beginning to increase traffic and attract specific tourism, thus strengthening the tourism product of the Province of Famagusta.” said the Minister of Transport, Communications and Works.
Specifically for the free Province of Famagusta, the Ministry of Transport, Communications and Works, in addition to creating the anchorage in Ayia Napa Marina, will proceed with the creation of anchorage in Marina Parali , thus facilitating the approach of cruise ships in the Province of Famagusta.
