(CNS): The cruise ship sector is off to a great start, as statistics on the Port Authority of the Cayman Islands website indicate than more than 58,500 people will be arriving in Grand Cayman this week aboard 24 ships. Nearly 7,000 passengers sailed into George Town on New Year’s Day, but that number was eclipsed Tuesday, 2 January, when six ships carrying 18,850 people were docked in port. January looks set to be a very busy month at the port, as 98 ships are scheduled to call in Grand Cayman bringing well over a quarter of a million visitors.



Although the cruise arrival numbers for December have not yet been confirmed, if the anticipated schedule was met last month, then the total cruise passenger arrivals for 2017 should have surpassed 2016 numbers by more than 25,000 passengers, with the highest arrival numbers at the port for some ten years.
