Crowds of cruise ship passengers taking the cable car back to the cruise ship port in Fira, Santorini. For a strong and sustainable local economy cruise ships should be banned in Santorini.
Why we want cruise ships banned from Santorini:
• Cruise ship passengers put incredible amounts of stress on the Santorini infrastructure with little economic benefit to the local economy.
• Cruise ships accelerate the degradation of the Santorini environment.
• The economics of cruise ships encourage short-term financial interests at the expense of long-term and sustainable tourism growth and development.
• Santorini is a much more healthy and enjoyable place to live, work, and visit without the stress, hassle, and chaos introduced by thousands of daily cruise ship passengers.

And please share this post with others. We’d love to have the input and suggestions from local business owners (of both Santorini and Mykonos) who would benefit from a cruise ship ban.
