2013 ... Perhaps the best year for the port of Piraeus as far as the cruise ships calls are concerned !! A year full of records ! 108 cruise ships , from the smaller of 50 meters length to the hugest of 333 meters respectively came to our harbor . The unsettled situation in Syria and Egypt brought many ships in our region which either canceled or reduced their approaches to the surrounding tourist areas . It has to be said that the only cancellation which was made in 2013 was the QM2 approach at the port of Piraeus in January when it failed to reach our port and eventually went to Irakleio
Please be so kind let us mention the 5 most important approaches as he recorded his lens pireaspiraeus.com
- AIDAmar, in February . Initial approach for the ship.
- Carnival Sunshine and Carnival Legend, 2 vessels " Mom " Carnival in the same year for the first time !
- Magic.Irthe Disney Mickey and his friends in the port of Piraeus !
- Royal Princess. The newest princess with her unbelievable horn !
- Europa 2, the brand new luxurious cruise ship with 6 hotel came in Piraeus and even started 2 cruises from our port
The company which honored us more than all was the Italian Costa Crociere, whose 9 ships came at Piraeus. Thursdays were the unforgettable days of the week ,as MSC Fantasia and Costa Magica mostly filled the streets of the port and somewhat but unfortunately not as much as should the market city .
Certainly on November 20 moccurred one of the curios and memorabilia for many years in the port of Piraeus since .. the red lighthouse of the port was disappearead after the allision of MSC Magnifica with this point of our port .
Also to remind you that on 12/9 , the cruise ships that came into port carried more than 18,400 passengers , a record number for our port .
