Security concerns push more cruise companies toward Greece

Greece is expected to reap significant benefits from the cruise sector in 2016, as the last few weeks have seen major cruise companies canceling their routes planned for Turkey and replacing them with Greek destinations.

The main reason for that development is the recent terrorist attack in Istanbul that resulted in the death of 10 German tourists, showing that the security factor is even more important than port infrastructures as far as attracting more cruise passengers is concerned.

For instance, MSC Cruises recently announced that it will replace the destinations of Istanbul and Izmir with Piraeus and Myconos, starting from March 26.
