Re: Green light for new study on combined Paphos marina cruise hub

Most cruise terminals, you walk off the ship. At Kusadasi, you walk through a shopping centre and Marina and the coaches for excursions are well away from the ship. There is a bus station near the harbour which could be used for the coaches for cruise excursions. A few thousand cruise passengers are...

Re: Cruise Liner

It is the Europa. A luxury cruise ship. It was due to dock at Ashdod but because of rockets fired from Gaza, could not do so. It is on its way to Limassol. 5* plus ship and well over €3000 for the next 11 day leg from Limassol to Dubai.

Re: Green light for new study on combined Paphos marina cruise hub

Ship anchored off Paphos is the Europa, a 5* plus ship whose passengers pay a great deal. Having a dock where cruises could dock and free buses to and from the old town would be bring in much revenue. Paphos has a lot going for it. When we dock at Limassol, a lot of people do not even get off the sh...

Re: Next e-car Giga plant after VW in Germany: Tesla

Totally agree Lloyd. Really fear for our economy in North Wales as we rely on the Merseyside, Deeside car plants and Airbus Broughton for a huge amount of employment. We have bought VW cars for the last 25 years and feel they have been slow off the mark with their range of electric cars. Our last pu...

Re: Showers and thunderstorms forecast today and over weekend

No rain today (Sun) in Anarita but had a really heavy shower yesterday afternoon. I went for a walk down at the harbour and could see storm clouds gathering over the hills. Rosemary stayed at home and thought I would be getting soaked. On the way back, around 5:30pm the roads were wet from the Ayia ...

Re: Immigration today (Weds 23/10/19)

Dee, when we got our ticket the guy behind the counter had no idea whether it was for MEU1 or 3. Most people in the queue were applying for MEU3 and they were in the inner office the same length of time as us. We were lucky today but are grateful to this site for warning us what it could be like so ...

Edited to include another category: the people who own holiday homes in Cyprus who are registering for MEU1 status in the lead up to Brexit so they're not limited by the proposed 90 days in 180 days visits if they do not have MEU1.

We watched it last night on Amazon Prime. Brilliant game and very close. Could have gone either way but he really dug in at the end. He was extremely emotional. Just as an aside, we watched it on catchup as it was on at the same time as the Liverpool game. Glad I did not log in yesterday afternoon a...

We met someone who had been told that they had residency years ago when they first bought here, and thought it was still valid. They are swallows, like us, but do stay for over 90 days in a 180 day period, so, officially, might need a visa. Our present cycle of stays is over 90 days in 180 for the f...

Re: Airlines,how can they fall for this?

Use see it regularly on the Manchester Paphos EasyJet flight when it was free seating and a fight to get on the plane first to get the best seats. Not seen it now that seats are allocated as often the disabled passengers are loaded last. However, I had this situation happen the other way. When I use...
