Cruise companies have already shown their interest in serving the new line. Turkey even sponsors cruises on vessels of up to 100 and up to 200 seats with US$30-45 per passenger. The Bulgarian port is in turn considering drastic reduction of port taxes to make travel cheaper and profitable for investors. There is also visa facilitation procedure for tourists from Turkey whose stay in Bulgaria is up to 48 hours.
