The terminal will be devoted exclusively to servicing of cruise tourists. As expected, in the port of Nesebr in the season of 2010 in the period from April to November are expected 45 cruise ships. This information, with reference to customs officers of Nesebr was published on the pages of the balkantravellers.com portal. Bulgaria has a high potential for development of cruise tourism, which has not yet fully realized. Despite its long coastal territory and the presence of a large number of ports, cruise traffic in Bulgaria is not as well developed as in neighboring Greece and Turkey. So far, Nesebr is the largest cruise destination of Bulgaria. At the same time the country's tourist industry is also interested in development other service lines for cruises, such, for example, as Varna. Either way, the Mediterranean area remains a priority for the major cruise operators. However, more recently, the Black Sea has become increasingly popular as a new cruise line. In addition in its development apart from Bulgaria's is actively participating Turkey, Romania and Ukraine.
