Supplementary notes

The data in 2018 was based on 70 ports that were contacted for information on cruise ship visits.

The source adds the following information regarding the methodology:
"Not all the information requested was available from all ports. Where no information was available, the statistic was estimated with the following regime.
• If a cruise ship was known to have called at a port but no passengers were given an estimate of the passengers was imputed from information given by other ports.
• If the number of ships was known to have called at a port but the name of the cruise ships and passenger figures were not available, sources like crew-center were used to help compile lists of ships visiting a port. If data was completely lacking and to fill in missing information, an estimate of the number of passengers was imputed from the average number of passengers per ship at other ports."
