Re: More good news for Bodrum

Hi, I'm not sure why you see this as being good news? As it's been my experience that anywhere that a cruise ship docks and disgorges its passengers, the local shopkeepers see it as being "profit on the hoof" and hike up the prices.

Re: More good news for Bodrum

Hi all. These cruise ships are cities all by themselves and have everything that their passenger would want. Don't expect the shops will make the killing they think they will, just small keepsakes will be bought for memories I think. The prices for food and drinks couldn't increase much more then they are now I would hope...

Re: More good news for Bodrum

Last November the MS Europa anchored in the middle of Bodrum harbour. It's just about the most expensive German cruise ship and we were able to visit it since some friends were cruising the Aegean on it. I think you can buy just about anything on it - there is a lovely library, theatre, cinema, I don't know how many restaurants, bars and cafes - and of course all the expensive brands. One thing I do know is that our friends didn't buy one single thing in Bodrum. The tours offered from the ship were either a half-day tour of Bodrum with the amphitheatre, castle, marina etc. or a day trip to Miletus. So not much money jingling in the Bodrum tills that day.

Re: More good news for Bodrum

I think you will get a combinaton of higher prices in shops in anticipation of taking money from the 'new' visitors followed by disappointment when they don't spend in town.
If anyone does end up spending and paying higher prices it will be those who use the facilities in town, i.e you who live there or visit regularly.

Re: More good news for Bodrum

Kusadasi will have 700 cruise ships docking at it's harbour this year but unfortunately not many of the local business's benefit from it. The tourists are put onto coaches the minute they get off the ship and taken to Ephesus, Meryemana etc, out-of-town jewellery and leather factory shops etc, then brought back to the ship on the coach.
