You might want to avoid the historic centre of Dubrovnik today over 7,000 cruise ship passengers have arrived this morning on five mega cruise ships. Today is in fact one of the busiest days in September for cruise ships in the city. And because of the rain and generally poor weather we can expect thousands of these passengers to descend on the Old City.
The largest cruise ship in Dubrovnik today is Norwegian Star with over 2,400 passengers onboard. The roads are already busy this morning and police are monitoring the main junctions around the city with traffic lights turned off presumably in an attempt to help traffic flow quicker. In total in September around 120,000 cruise passengers are expected to disembark on 84 cruise ships.
