- What are the tourist profile and source markets that Miray Cruise is targeting?

As Miray Cruises, our marketing activities will be carried out in Australia, London, Germany, Spain in 2024.

There will be participation from China, Korea, Japan, Egypt, Algeria, Iran, Azerbaijan and Georgia.

 

You previously stated that one of Miray Cruise's goals is to open all the coasts of Turkey to cruise tourism. What are your works in this direction?

Our work in this direction still continues.

 

- What is Turkey's position in the world in cruise tourism and floating hotel management? What are the steps to be taken for the development of cruise tourism in our country?

Although our three sides are Deniz, unfortunately we are not at the place we deserve, for example, we are not strong enough in promotion, especially the expensiveness of some ports drives many shipping companies away from us, at the same time, the fact that the personnel working at the terminals do not speak English is another problem, the most important thing to do is to attend Cruise fairs around the world. more participation should be ensured, our ports and especially the Black Sea region should be promoted more actively,

 

- The Covid-19 pandemic has caused significant losses to the cruise industry globally. How is the interest in cruise tourism this year, after the epidemic ended and travel restrictions were lifted significantly? Can we get your 2023 forecasts and evaluations globally and specifically for Türkiye?

 

This interest is increasing gradually, I would like to state that we have not yet reached the figures before the Pandemic.

 

- To what extent is cruise tourism affected by the crises in the global economy? What is the effect of constantly increasing costs on cruise tourism in Turkey?

 

Unfortunately, inflation is increasing in Turkey. For this reason, trips abroad are getting more expensive every day, but it is still the cheapest way to travel abroad when made by ship.
