Passengers on MSC Splendida got the full Turkish hospitality treatment during the vesselís maiden call in Marmaris on Friday.

Marmaris Cruise Port created a complimentary mini Turkish bazaar on the pier for the passengers to wander through as they disembarked, including a traditional Turkish carpet weaving stall with local handicrafts on show, a baklava stall, traditional Turkish ice-cream and honey doughnuts, a Turkish coffee stand, free souvenirs, brochures, city maps and posters of Marmaris as well as entertainment in the form of a childrenís folklore dance troupe, Turkish music and even a whirling Dervish.

Later, the master of MSC Splendida was presented with a plaque and a custom-made traditional Turkish ceramic plate to commemorate the visit.

MSC Splendida returns to Marmaris on December 15, completing the portís 2009 season.

In 2010, Thomson Celebration will homeport, accounting for 26 turnarounds of the 114 calls confirmed. Improvements to the port infrastructure including resurfacing both piers and car park and adding new permanent awnings to provide shelter from the summer heat for the outside seating areas have all been undertaken this year.

Looking further ahead plans to build a new 330mtr pier are awaiting approval from the Ministry of Tourism.
