In May, the South Aegean Tourism Initiative recorded a 51% increase in cruise ship arrivals and a 26% rise in cruise passenger numbers.


Meanwhile, 417 port calls have been scheduled for arrival at the port of Rhodes in the months leading up to December. The corresponding number for that same period in 2019 was at 258.
