This year Croatia will receive more cruise ships than last year, 963 cruise ships are expected to arrive in the country this year, whilst last year there were 911.
According to data from the Ministry of Sea, Traffic and Infrastructure the largest number of cruise ship arrivals in the Adriatic will be in Dubrovnik and Split.
"The Port of Dubrovnik expects in 2018 a continuation of business like in 2017, with a certain reduction in the number of cruise ships but a slight increase in the number of passengers due to changes made in the business environment of cruise tourism," the Ministry pointed out.
Over the course of this year, the Port of Dubrovnik is expected to receive 441 cruise ships with about 740 thousand passengers. This is 2 percent less cruise ships than in 2017 but a 4 percent increase in passengers.
