Merkez Deniz Acenteligi ve Ticaret A.S. is one of oldest shipping agencies in Turkey, with a succesful background and experience of over a century. Merkez Deniz is operational at all Turkish Ports, including the straits of Dardanelles and Bosphorus.
The original company was established by one of the few pioneers of the sector / shipping industry in Istanbul during the Ottoman reign, at the end of the 19th century, as a foreign company. In 1975 it was transformed into a Turkish company under our present name “Merkez Deniz Acenteliği ve Ticaret A.S”
In 2008 Merkez Deniz completed a merger with the port agency department of ITS International Travel Services, forming the largest cruise agency portfolio in Turkey. The vast experience of both aforementioned companies, which focused on Cruise Ship handling for many decades are now at service of Cruise Lines with a well earned reputation.
In addition, we may proudly add that we are currently attending as port agents for PCL, P & O, CUNARD , HAL, SEABOURN CRUISE LINE, WINDSTAR CRUISES; PRESTIGES CRUISE HOLDINGS LINES, CRYSTAL CRUISES, SILVER SEA CRUISES, ALL LEISURE GROUP PLC. (Swan Hellenic), V- SHIPS , ALBATROS, AMADEA, ARTANIA & EXPLORER at Turkish Ports.
MERKEZ DENIZ has also handled the first GRAND CLASS ship turn around of the Mediterranean Area in Istanbul in 1998; which was followed by major cruise lines extensively upto 9/11/2001. We are still handling T/A operations in İstanbul for WINDSTAR CRUISES, OCEANIA CUISES, REGENT SEVEN SEAS CRUISES & SILVERSEA CRUISES, CRYSTAL CRUISES, HAL, SEABOURN CRUISES
