Piraeus, Greece (PortSEurope) January 10, 2018 – We are particularly pleased to present you this year, as in the last six years, the final list of Greek ports where arrivals were made cruise ships and cruise passengers for 2017.

The source of the data is the members of ELIME (Port Organizations SA), the members – observers (Ports) and the local Port Authorities of the country (where no there are ELIME members or observer members).

The picture of 2017 data verifies the forecasts of market executives cruise cruises for both cruise ship arrivals and visits cruise passengers to the Greek destinations that were to be affected mainly due to instability and uncertainty in the wider East region Mediterranean ports and the ports of these countries.

There was a drop of approximately 20.5% in cruise ship arrivals (from 4,307 in 2016 to 3,415 in 2017) and a drop of around 11% in cruise passenger visits from
5,204,231 in 2016 to 4,625,363 in 2017.

However, the top ten destinations remain the same as in previous ones years with Piraeus in first place and only remarkable change the second place for the port of Mykonos in replacing that of Santorini, which is fourth for the first time.
