More and more Bulgarians choose cruises for holiday. Such is the trend in the world. Last year, just under 28 million people were cruising around the world, up 5.5 per cent a year earlier. This year, nearly 30 million people are expected to opt for cruises. Of these, about 12 000 will be Bulgarians. This shows the data of the Bulgarian office of Usit Colors, which offer cruises.
A boat carrying 75 refugees and migrants was located more than 80 miles southeast of Pylos, in the southwestern Peloponnese.
According to the coast guard, a distress call was made from the boat in Monday morning and a cargo ship was nearby the location of the call.
A coast guard vessel has responded to the call and sent a vessel to the location.
