Global Ports Holding subsidiary Bodrum Cruise Port in Turkey has received Odyssey of the Seas, a Royal Caribbean cruise ship.

Bodrum Cruise Port said this was the largest cruise ship it has hosted in its history.

With 3,693 American, British and German passengers, this was also the first voyage to Bodrum for Odyssey of the Seas.

Global Ports Holding Eastern Mediterranean ports director Aziz Güngör said: “We will be seeing more large ships like Odyssey of the Seas in Bodrum waters from next year. Bodrum is on its way to becoming a very important cruise destination.”

Most of the passengers from the ship visited the old town and bazaars in Bodrum, while other passengers opted for tour buses to visit Bodrum’s archaeological sites, such as St Peter Castle, Sandima Village Tour, Jeep Safari, Turkish Bath and Beach Clubs.

Odyssey of the Seas is Royal Caribbean’s second Quantum Ultra-class ship. Its sister Quantum Ultra-class cruise ship, Spectrum of the Seas, started service in April 2019.
