Piraeus to grow into the region’s biggest cruise port

Work gets under way on the expansion of the cruise terminal in Piraeus this year, set to make it the biggest cruise hub in the Eastern Mediterranean, allowing for the docking of the biggest and best cruise ships, whose length exceeds 300 meters.

The investment is worth 136 million euros, which is 95 percent subsidized by the European Union.

Piraeus Port Authority (OLP) made the announcement on the occasion of the arrival of the first cruise shop this year, the MSC Sinfonia, which moored at Piraeus on Saturday.
