ATHENS – The success of Greek tourism this year is not only reflected in flight arrivals but also in the cruise market, Tourism Minister Vasilis Kikilias noted in a tweet on Wednesday. According to Hellenic Ports Association’s forecast for the final cruise arrivals results in 2022, there has been a spectacular increase of 150 percent in comparison with 2021 and 25 percent compared with 2019, while the homeporting is also enhanced.

“With 5,000 cruiseship approaches this year at Greek ports, cruises are gaining a strong dynamic. The 25 pct increase in comparison with 2019 refers to the total of cruise destinations. So, the tourist product is spread to the entire country, supporting local economies,” Kikilias posted.
