Figures for mid-2019 in the area of overnight visitors illustrate that at the end of the second quarter, there was a cumulative increase of six percent in overnight tourist arrivals this year.

As for figures regarding cruise ship arrivals, while June reflected an approximate 18,000 less in cruise visitors in comparison to last year; the first half of 2019 cruise passenger arrivals totaled an approximate 700,000 visitors, reflecting a 10.8% rise over 2018. Moreover, there were 7 more cruise ship calls in comparison to 2018.
