Global Ports is expecting 11 million passengers to embark on its cruises next year, well above pre-pandemic levels.
The cruise port operator announced today it was expecting 4,538 cruise call reservations from January to December 2023, 26 per cent up on pre-pandemic levels.
The company – which has a presence in the Mediterranean as well as in the Caribbean and Asia-Pacific – like many others was dealt a hard blow as a result of the pandemic.
But it recovered well following the end of travel restrictions.
Between January and September, call reservations were 11 per cent above 2019 levels, with peaks in January, March and April.
