Burgas, Bulgaria (PortSEurope) August 17, 2018 – The Black Sea is becoming an attractive destination for luxury cruise ships, Bulgaria’s Burgas port director, Diyan Dimov, has said. One of the famous companies in this sector, Crystal Cruises, is preparing a cruise to Burgas. Negotiations with other companies are also carried out, Dimov said during a news conference. “We are guaranteed a luxury cruise for 2021.
The Crystal Symphony ship is about 250 metres-long and with penthouse apartments. Last month, the state of emergency in Turkey ended and it is now much easier to talk about this type of tourism. In the future, I am convinced that Burgas will become a top destination,” Dimov said. With the construction of the port in Kraimorie, which should be completed by 2020, an exclusive opportunity for local tourism will be opened. “A route from Burgas to Kraimorie, the island of Saint Anastasia and Sarafovo would not only be a great attraction for thousands of tourists but could also act as a supplement for people arriving in the city with large and luxury ships such as Crystal Symphony. I am convinced that this would attract thousands of tourists because our shores are some of the most beautiful in the world and many people are gradually beginning to realise this fact,” Dimov said.
