NEW ZEALAND cruise reached a record high last season and the outlook for this booming sector remains strong.
Over 254,400 passengers and almost 92,000 crew visited #NewZealand during the 2015-2016 #cruise season which started in August 2015 and ended in June 2016.
35 ships that collectively visited New Zealand 138 times and made 703 port visits across the country.
“This represents a phenomenal growth of 26% in terms of passenger arrivals which translates to an injection of $484 million into New Zealand’s economy,” Kevin O’Sullivan, Cruise New Zealand’s outgoing chair, says. Mr O’Sullivan says New Zealand welcomed nine new ships during the 2015-2016 season. The forecasts for the next two years are exciting.
