tourism affect decline cruise not segment

The decline in tourism will not affect the cruise segment
#1
The fall in the entry of tourists through the FUE airport and, consequently, the hotel occupation that is being experienced in recent months in Fuerteventura will not affect the cruise segment. In fact, in the new cruise season, which starts in September and will last until May 2020, not only will the number of cruise passengers who arrive in Puerto del Rosario not be reduced, but will be increased in a way more than significant compared to the previous season.

This is confirmed by the City of Puerto del Rosario based on the latest data provided by responsible for Ports of Las Palmas. «According to the data provided by the Port Authority, the increase that they are perceiving that we can receive in Puerto del Rosario for the next cruise season is around 5,000 more cruise passengers compared to the previous year, when they were approximately 232,000 in total. Logically, these figures are provisional », as explained to this newspaper the Councillor for Tourism of the Consistory of Puerto del Rosario, Sonia Alamo.

So, at least for now, the decline in tourism is not being noticed in this specialized segment. This is the case even though 103 ships will come, less than in the previous season. According to Alamo, there will be no fewer passengers because, although they dock fewer cruises than in the previous season, those who do so will be "bigger" and, therefore, with greater capacity "to transport passengers.

The commerce of Puerto del Rosario, especially related to the catering sector in the down town area of ​​the capital, can continue to breathe easy for now, because the new season could leave good results. According to Alamo, in terms of tourism, the cruise sector is "the main asset that the capital of Fuerteventura has" and, in fact, in days gone by, the mayor presented the Strategic Plan at a meeting before the heads of other municipalities of Puerto del Rosario, an initiative of the Department of Tourism that establishes the basic lines to be developed in the tourist field of the municipality during the next "three or four years."

In the rest of the municipalities, the fall in tourism, especially that of foreigners, has been noticeable in recent months, mainly due to the loss of air connections.
