Maritime Connection between Greece & Cyprus Relaunches

ATHENS – The Cyprus-flagged ship ‘Daleela’ docked the port of Piraeus on Monday, signalling the relaunch of a maritime connection between Greece and Cyprus after 22 years.

‘Daleela’, of Scandro Holding Ltd, sailed on Sunday from Limassol carrying 155 passengers, 38 cars and 7 motorcycles.

Assigned only as a seasonal maritime connection, it will carry out four return journeys in June, eight in July, seven in August and three in September. The last itinerary for this year is scheduled for September 16.

“The thread that connects these two pillars of Hellenism becomes even stronger today,” said Greek Deputy Tourism Minister Sofia Zacharaki at Piraeus.

The celebratory docking of ‘Daleela’ was also attended by Greek Deputy Shipping Minister Kostas Katsafados and Cypriot Deputy Shipping Minister Vassilios Demetriades.

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
