The Port of Palma beats record for cruise ship stopovers in a single month

31/05/2008

Today the Port of Palma has reached a new record of 84 cruise ship stopovers in the same month, surpassing the record high of 80 stopovers registered since October, 1999. The month of May closed with a 9% increase over the same month in 2007, when a total of 77 cruise ships passed through the Port of Palma. Adding to the fact that May and October are the two busiest months of the season in the ports of the Balearic Islands, with regard to such vessels, on May 18, the Oceanic and the Grand Mistral made unscheduled visits to Palma’s facilities, due to the fact that they had been forced to suspend their stopovers in the port of Tunisia. If the program for this year is fulfilled, the Port of Palma will break another historical record: 500 stopovers by cruise ships in the same year. The current forecast is for an increase of 5% in cruise ship stopovers compared with 2007, when the port of Palma received for the first time, over one million cruise ships in a single season
