Cruise Ships

Zeymarine Ship Agencies & Services was established back in 2015 as a personal venture of K. Gurkan Kosemen who at the time have spent more than 20 years in a well-established maritime agency as a distinguished executive. H. Umut Cinar, another esteemed member of the industry with an experience of more than 20 years joined the company as a partner in 2018.

Since then, Zeymarine has become the leading company in offering a broad range of agency services, straits encompassing port agency services, protecting agency services, and husbandry services.

Now it’s time to offer our services for the cruise sector!

Mrs. Rengin Bulbul Turan, who has vast experience in this sector for more than 24 years, has joined our team to head the cruise department, as the cruise sector has continuously been growing in accordance with the popularity of global tourism.

Thanks to our global network that spans over 45 countries and local expertise of many long years, Zeymarine now brings its resources to offer cruise agency services at all Turkish ports and strait passages in order to give your guests the perfect cruise holiday they have dreamed of.

Operating through our agency offices in Istanbul, Rotterdam, and Singapore, we are working passionately and continuously to meet all your needs.
Whether it’s formalities such as immigration, customs, and port authority; berth booking, medical assistance (both for guests and crew), special permits and requests, or services for your cruise ships like bunkering (fuel and freshwater), waste disposal, repairs, stevedore contracting, or onshore support such as hotel accommodation arrangements, and transfer services, we’ve got it all covered for you!
