A colorful Ottoman military marching band welcomed the maiden call of Queen Victoria to Marmaris Cruise Port in traditional Turkish style on Tuesday.

The port presented passengers with souvenirs and gifts on the pier. The visitors walked to the old town centre for shopping, soaked up the sun by the harbour or discovered the Marmaris area on excursions.

Queen Victoria arrived early morning with 2,023 passengers and 983 crew.
