Members of the government is meeting with officials from Royal Caribbean about interest in building a cruise pier in Rhodes, Greece.
A meeting at the Ministry of Culture and Tourism in Athens on Thursday will lay out a plan by Royal Caribbean to spend over 25 million euros to build a pier at Akantia where they can accommodate ships of up to 350 meters and turn the island into a small “cruise center”.
Royal Caribbean is looking to invest the money in the port in exchange for assistance with the notorious Greek bureaucracy.
The meeting is scheduled to include Greek Miniser of Regional Development, Minister of Tourism and Culture and the Secretary General of the Ports along with represenatives from Royal Caribbean. The purpose of the meeting is to see how quickly Greek officials can work to approve the proposal by Royal Caribbean.
