Director of Black Sea
It is an honor for me to be part of the largest cruise port association in the world, which in the last year has faced an extremely difficult time that has shaken the cruise business around the world.
Within the Association, as the director of MedCruise for the Black Sea, we created the Black Sea Working Group to resume cruising in the Black Sea region. After several years of absence of cruise calls for geopolitical reasons, 2020 was supposed to be the year of relaunch, but due to the pandemic, cruise activities around the world have been blocked. It was a difficult time and a challenge for everyone, but the Association did its job more than ever and got involved and kept all members together, to create a common and safe environment for the cruise industry, so that it can resume the activity at safer levels. We all will work hard and do our best to relaunch the business and to welcome cruise passengers back to our cities.
