Intercruises Shoreside & Port Services, an experienced global business offering first class ground handling and port agency services to the ocean and river cruise industry, succeeded in securing the award for Innovative Shorex for the second time, at the 2012 Seatrade Insider Cruise Awards in Palais du Pharo, Marseille. Intercruises received the award for the “Greek Theatre: Past & Present” shore excursion in Athens. The excursion provides cruise guests with a guided tour into one of history’s most intriguing civilisations.
 
The Greek Theatre: Past & Present excursion takes cruise guests on a historic journey through ancient Greece. Disembarking from the Port of Piraeus, guests are taken on a guided tour of the Theatre of Dionysus; home to the dramas of Greek playwrights, Aristophanes, Aeschylus and Sophocles. Built on the south slope of Athenian citadel, the theatre provides guests with an excellent vantage point, overlooking contemporaryAthens, giving the visitors the chance to experience the contrast of ancient and modern Greece. Guests are then treated to a dramatic compilation of Greek theatre history. Following the show, guests meet with the cast to answer any questions about the performance or the theatre.
 
“I would like to thank Seatrade for this award and I would like to congratulate the Intercruises Mediterranean team on their success; they are constantly seeking new and unique ways to provide our guests with the best possible shore excursions. Winning this award for the second time demonstrates the high standards of our shore excursions and our commitment to product innovation.”Said Mark Robinson, Managing Director of Intercruises Shoreside & Port Services.
