“2015 was the brightest year for us. Almost 1,500 ships stopped in Turkish ports, and cruise passenger traffic amounted to 1.7 million people. Although our industry dwindled in the following years, we became the cruise company that never abandoned these waters and visited Turkish ports most often. With 150 sailings a year, we have not only increased the number of Turkish cruise tours, but also created economic value by attracting foreign cruise passengers to Turkey. As our industry has picked up momentum since the pandemic, the world’s largest cruise ships have curtailed their routes to Istanbul and our ports. In 2022, we planned to take 11,000 Turks on cruises. We have more hope for 2023, we have again and more comprehensively planned our programs. We are happy to meet cruise travelers who will never give up on us in the new season with our surprises. We have added to our awards a new Far Route Travel Awards that we are proud of.” (Celestyal Cruises)
