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

But surely boats will stop at Paphos rather than Limassol because of the mosaics. IE, if they are landing at Paphos they have that in mind as a tourist destination. And Tomb of the Kings etc. If they want trips to Troodos it would make more sense to dock at Limassol. The thing is Dominic, cruise sh...

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

We do a lot of cruises, and most passengers will not dine in local restaurants, disembarkation is after breakfast, so everyone is full up, a stroll round the harbour, coffee and back on the ship for lunch, cruise ships make a big part of their revenue from excursions, the further away and longer the...

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

Whilst not against cruise ships per se I think that having a dock in Paphos or Potomas Bay i.e. the planned marina, would overwhelm what is quite a small town (and I accept that there are a lot of small islands that have cruise ships docking). Let them come ashore by tender as at present and there ...

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

WHL many cruise ships anchor off Paphos harbour and ferry there passengers ashore. As I type this there is a Cruise Ship anchored off Paphos harbour now. It has been there all day. So a marina with a Quay for Cruise Ships would be most welcome. Dont get me wrong im not against , the idea of cruise ...

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

I cant see it ever happening, as the Limassol port is only half an hour away. You're a faster man than I WHL. I live well on the east side of Paphos and if I were going to the new marina in Limassol (as opposed to the old Port), I would be allowing an hour. From where the proposed new marina is in ...

Three Ducks go to a Bar.

'Say, what's your name?' the bartender asked the first duck. 'Huey,' was the reply. 'How's your day been, Huey?' 'Great. Lovely day. Had a ball. Been in and out of puddles all day. What else could a duck want?' said Huey. 'Oh. That's nice,' said the bartender. He turned to the second duck, 'Hi, and ...

Re: FIRE?

Nothing to do with Hunters, that is just put out there by anti Hunting posters, someone has been arrested for arson, it would be alot better if people waited to hear some facts before going into '' I heard it down the Pub ''mode, especially where crimes or businesses closing down are concerned.

Re: Second week now that it is like summer...

It is not that unusual that after the first autumn rains we have a nice period of dry weather again in Cyprus. What I realized though, it is much warmer than previous times, when you had to start heating your premises, 20/30 years back. Also the people running the fish tavern at Timi beach cannot r...

Dr's receptionist

There's nothing worse than a Doctor's Receptionist who insists you tell her what is wrong with you, in a room full of other patients. I know most of us have experienced this, and I love the way this old guy handled it. A 75-year-old man walked into a crowded waiting room and approached the desk. The...
