The opposition Socialist party on Palma City Council yesterday expressed its concern about the drop in the number of cruise ships visiting Palma between April and July of this year.
According to the Socialists, the number of cruise ships docking in Palma fell from 222 to 203 during that period, a decline of 9.3 percent.
And, subsequently, there was a fall in the number passengers. “What has caught our attention is that the year began with plenty of talk about an increase in cruise liners and passengers coming to Palma, and up until the middle of the year, that appeared to be the case.
