Cruise passenger numbers in the Mediterranean have rocketed from 8.7 million to 30 million in a decade.
The Mediterranean is the world’s leading destination for coastal and maritime tourism, attracting about one third of all global visitors: in terms of gross added value and employment it’s the biggest sector in the tourism industry.
Managing this growth in a coordinated way across the region is essential so the sector doesn’t destroy the very resources which attract people to the Mediterranean in the first place. Clearly, efforts must be made to limit the environmental impacts of cruising as far as possible, particularly in ecologically vulnerable areas.
