Limassol Municipality is looking to re-energise the interest of cruise organisers on the basis of the city’s strategic planning to become a top cruise destination, a goal pursued also by DP World Limassol, the company that operates the multi-purpose terminal at the city’s port.

Mayor of Limassol Nikos Nicolaides and representatives of the Cyprus Shipping Chamber held a meeting on Wednesday focusing on a series of related issues.

Cruises are a key component of our citys tourism, but also of the revitalization of the city centre Limassol Mayor told the Cyprus News Agency.

Nicolaides said that two trips to Marseilles and Haifa, scheduled to take place in March and April, respectively, are part of the effort to establish cooperation.

It is extremely important to render Limassol a top cruise destination the Mayor noted, adding that to achieve that the Municipality needs to develop its infrastructure.
