Dubrovnik still magnet for cruise ships Dubrovnik still magnet for cruise ships

Cruise ship numbers drop in Croatia in 2017

By  Feb 12, 2018

According to new statistics there were 16 percent fewer cruise ships in Croatia last year compared with 2016. A total of 691 foreign cruise ships arrived in Croatian waters in 2017, 135 fewer cruise ships than in 2016, and there were 13 percent fewer passengers last year.

Such a drop in cruise ship numbers has somewhat bucked the trend of recent years, and one reason for this could be the decision of Venice to limit the number of passengers allowed in the city. Almost every month last year saw a drop in cruise ship numbers. The most popular destination by far is still Dubrovnik, over 63 percent of all cruise ships in Croatia last year came to Dubrovnik.
