The cruise ship season has begun in Dubrovnik! Two mega cruise ships, Viking Star and Viking Sea, docked early this morning in the Port of Dubrovnik carrying around 2,000 passengers between them. These first two cruise ship “swallows” of the new season are part of the Viking Ocean Cruises group. A third sister ship, Viking Sky, will dock in the city on the 31st of March.

In total ten cruise ships will dock in Dubrovnik this month carrying with them around 5,610 passengers. The cruise ship season starts for real next month with 33 cruise ships carrying in almost 51,000 passengers in April.

During 2017 in Dubrovnik 577 cruise ships are expected to arrive in Dubrovnik with around 760,000 passengers. These figures are a slight decrease on last year, around 9 percent fewer cruise ship passengers are expected this year compared to 2016.
