Spain’s Mallorca expects nearly the same cruise traffic as before pandemic

Balearic Spain’s "best party island" Mallorca is due to experience a cruise frenzy during summer 2020 as it expects to receive about the same number of cruises as it did last summer before the pandemic began.

Cruise liners have been a breeding ground for the novelty virus since the beginning of the crisis. Their high volume enables them to carry thousands of guests, all sharing common areas, and the multi-stop trips helped spread the Coronavirus on unparalleled levels.

When COVID-19 quarantine began, a lot of nations did not allow cruise passengers to dock on their ports. Many were forced to unwillingly extend their sailing.

This July cruises will return to the ports of Mallorca. However, the largest influx of traffic is to be witnessed in August.

As travel companies struggle to make up the profits that were lost during the paralysis of the pandemic, an abundance of vessels will be arriving in Mallorca from July through December 2020. During this time, the island will receive 249 ships, which is just 31 less than it did during the same time in 2019.

Port of Palma de Mallorca (Majorca Island, Balearic Spain)

Port Palma de Mallorca is located on Majorca Island's southeastern coast (Western Mediterranean Sea). It is among the busiest homeports (departure ports) for cruise ships due to its proximity to the international Palma Airport (PMI) - located approx 8 km (5 mi) east of the cruise port.
