The gigantic cruise liners which berth in Palma are really important to the economy
The gigantic cruise liners which berth in Palma are really important to the economy of the city. This year 1.5 million cruise ship passengers spent some time in the city and based on the
reservations for berths next year it looks like there could well be around 1.8 million happy cruisers in Palma.
With a strong possibility that over 20,000 people could arrive on the same day the impact on Palma is immense – shops, bars and restaurants can be packed with affluent customers.
So, embracing the philosophy that forewarned is forearmed, Palma council have published a calendar of all the cruise ship arrivals for 2012 which is available for
interested parties in the city. It shows the date, time of arrival and departure and capacity of each boat as well as a daily total of passengers due into the port.
Of course, you could always use it to see which big cruise ships will be in port if you're going to be in Palma next year. Just click the link – "http://www.palmademallorca.es/IMI/PORTAL/PRD/RecursosWeb/DOCUMENTOS/1/0_55492_1.pdf" target="_blank">Cruise Calendar.
