Passengers and crew on the Carnival Vista were treated to a surprise pierside welcome ceremony on a recent call in Piraeus.

The port held a cultural event with a performance from the Piraeus Municipal Theatre and traditional dances from the Keratsini cultural club dance team.

The performances will be repeated for select cruise arrivals this year.

Stavaros Hatzakos, port director, said the welcome was to enhance the attractiveness of the Greek tourism product.
