Antalya Cruise Port

Antalya Cruise Port is located at Port Akdeniz, a multipurpose port with separate harbors for cruise ships, container ships and bulk cargo vessels, as well as a yacht marina. Given its proximity to Antalya, a major international airport, a wide range of hotels and a variety of important archaeological sites such as Aspendos, Perge and Side, the port has all the appeal necessary to be a key homeport on the Mediterranean. Antalya is the number one holiday destination in Turkey hosting over 110 million tourists yearly.

Cruise operations began in 2010 and transformed Antalya into a new turnaround hub in the Eastern Mediterranean. Moreover, given the capacity and convenience of its own yacht marina facilities, Port Akdeniz also plays a key role in domestic and international yacht tourism in the Turkish Mediterranean.

Port Akdeniz has three cruise piers totaling 510 m in length, a 1,830 m2 passenger terminal and a 990 m2 luggage area which serves cruise passengers. Port Akdeniz hosted 13,842 passengers in 2009, and thanks to the promotion of the port as a turnaround hub, this number increased significantly to around 200,000 passengers in 2015. The primary objective of the Company was to position Port Akdeniz as a turnaround hub in the Eastern Mediterranean. Following the start of turnaround operations for Aida Cruises in 2010, and TUI Cruises in 2012, the port’s cruise traffic increased ten-fold.

Port Akdeniz provides pilotage, tugging, mooring, sheltering, security, fresh water supply and waste collection to cruise ships, as well as full terminal services including luggage operations. A recipient of the prestigious “Most Improved Terminal Facilities” award in 2011, Port Akdeniz offers top-quality services to ensure that passengers enjoy their cruise to the fullest.
