Another busy day of cruise ships in Dubrovnik as long delays form

Written by  Jun 09, 2017

Once again Dubrovnik is under siege as thousands of cruise ship passengers have descended on the city today. The roads are at breaking point as long tailbacks caused by the increase in bus, coach and taxis has made the city’s roads resemble a huge car park.

The height of the cruise ship season is truly upon us. Yesterday around 9,000 passengers arrived in the city and today three mega cruise ships, including MSC Poesia and Mein Schiff, have arrived carrying just over 5,000 passengers.

The start of the weekend will also be a busy one with another 5,000 passengers expected on Saturday on two cruise ships. Respite will come on Sunday when only one mini-cruise ship will arrive in Dubrovnik, so Sunday will be a good opportunity to visit the historic Old City and avoid the cruise ship crush.
