Miray Cruises to start operations in the Aegean Sea
Miray International begins its own cruise operation in the Aegean Sea. The business offers short cruises aboard The Gemini which was built in 1992.
The port-intensive 3 and 4 night itineraries depart from Piraeus, Greece, and Cesme, Turkey, and visit a number of Greek islands.
Both cruises feature calls in Mykonos, Santorini, Syros and Cesme while Rhodes is also visited by the longer itinerary.
The Gemini is said to be on a multi-year charter to Miray, who has been involved for the past eight years in the cruise industry.
The company has previously provided floating accommodation facilities, for European shipyards in particular.
Miray was also involved with ETS, a Turkish travel company.
According to the cruise line, cruise ships previously operated by Miray include the Louis Aura, the Aegean Paradise and the Delphin.
Although this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, much of the season has had to be cancelled, Miray is optimistic for an August launch. The business expects to cruise by 31 August, following revised health and safety guidelines.
