The contribution sum will be cut by 20 pct on condition that the sea cruise company would employ Greek sailors at a rate of at least 1.0 pct of total ship crew. The contribution sum will be cut by 7.0 pct for each additional Greek port the ship approaches according to the cruise schedule of the companyANa-Mpa.

    "Today is the beginning of a new day for the sea cruise [sector] and for the country. This decision offers incentives to sea cruise companies to operate more in Greek ports, offers incentives to hire Greek sailors, offers incentives for the development of our ports. According to information, this decision was met with enthusiasm by sea cruise companies and I believe a new era for sea cruises begins from 2011", Diamantidis said.
