The year 2011 will be the first for the substantive imple-mentation of the lifting of cabotage, following the signing a relevant contract on cruises by relevant ministers last month.

The year 2011 will be the first for the substantive imple-mentation of the lifting of cabotage, following the signing a relevant contract on cruises by relevant ministers last month.

The contract fully safeguards the interests of the public sector without restricting the activity of shipping companies with "superfluous bureaucratic procedures", according to the government.

Based on the ministerial decision, the contribution per passenger and roundtrip cruise voyage for ships flying a non-EU flag is set at 3.95 euros.

The amount of the contribution decreases by 20 percent on the explicit precondition that the company employs Greek seamen to a number corresponding to at least 1 percent of the total number of crew members. The amount of the contribution decreases by 7 percent for every additional Greek port that the ship approaches, according to the company's declared itinerary.

The first cruiseship to dock at the port of Piraeus in 2011 was the Costa Pacifica, while the MSC Fantasia docked at the port of Irakleio, Crete and Rhodes on Jan. 1.
