The director of the Korcula Port Authority, Vedran Lelekovic, has stated that the cruise ship season on Korcula last year was slightly down on 2014. In 2015 128 cruise ships arrived on Korcula carrying with them 42,355 passengers. In 2014 there were 175 cruise ships and 52,500 passengers, which means that there were 47 fewer cruise ships and around 10,000 fewer passengers last year.
“The movement of cruise ships in the world market is unfortunately like that, and we had a small number of ship arrivals and therefore passengers,” said the technical director of the Korcula Port Authority, Zarko Klisur. He went on to add that this year there will be more cruise ships on Korcula but fewer passengers. In 2016 there will be a total of 175 cruise ship arrivals to Korcula with around 37,797 expected.
