Sources said there are at least two major cruise companies from the US that are interested, even though the utilization of the port proceeds with the sale of 67% of shares and not the concession of the cruise pier.

Lavrio currently sports a modern passenger terminal with the capacity only for small and medium-sized cruise liners; such vessels are likely to increase in numbers as the Aegean will in future likely to be served to a lesser extent by huge 300-meter cruise ships with 4,000-5,000 passengers that have drawn protest from the island destinations they call at.
