Greek Islands Seek to Gain from Santorini’s Cap on Cruise Traffic

Syros, Cyclades

Syros, Cyclades

Smaller and less popular Greek islands are looking to tap into cruise traffic turned away from Santorini, following a decision by the island’s authorities last week to implement a system controlling the number of visiting cruise passengers, with a set limit at 8,000 a day in efforts to ensure the best quality services, safeguard the environment and spread out the number of cruise ship calls throughout the week.

According to media reports, officials on other islands are making plans to step in and get a piece of the pie. Among the destinations already gaining ground as a cruise port of call is the Cycladic isle of Syros, which is seeing increased traffic for 2016.

Other destinations looking to attract cruise travelers include the islands of Paros, Milos and Ios, as well as mainland locations including Nafplio, Alexandroupolis and Kavala.
