btbCruise arrivals in Belize have grown significantly in the first quarter of the New Year, reports the Belize Tourism Board. Cruise arrivals in 2015 have seen major increases in January and March, with 16.6% and 15.8% increase, respectively. The BTB details that for the first quarter of 2015, overnight arrivals remained steady. There was a 1.1% increase in overnight arrivals in March 2015, representing an increase of 424 tourists over March 2014. This though was followed by two months of decreases that were similarly small in magnitude, being 1.0% and 1.1% in January and February, respectively. According to the BTB’s first quarterly report, the major factor influencing the results in the overnight sector was weather. “There were severe snow storms that took place frequently during this period, resulting in cancellation of flights that affected travel from Canada, as well as the Central and Eastern United States, including Connecticut, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New York City – some originating destinations for visitors to Belize”, the report stated. The BTB projects that in 2015 it will see an increase in arrival numbers over last year. It will also keep a close watch on the global conditions in the months ahead as they keep playing a role in the number of tourist arrivals to the country.
