Santorini limits cruise passengers

This item appears on page 4 of the April 2018 issue.

The Greek island of Santorini now limits the number of cruise passengers allowed to land to 8,000 per day. The island averaged about 12,000 visitors per day in 2017. Authorities have also asked cruise lines to better schedule their arrivals and shorten their stopovers so that groups of visitors can be more evenly spread out over the day.
