Cruise ships today!

Santorini’s population is roughly 15,000 residents in total, usually living in 13 small villages with less than 3,000 inhabitants each, but some days like today, a few more … floating villages are added! Today four ships are expected to dock in Fira bay, almost at the same time early in the morning, with a total capacity 11,608 passengers! Almost another 'Santorini'. Take pictures of the huge cruise ships and the incessant travelling of the boats in the caldera, where traffic will last until noon. Avoid using the cable car that will have long queues and the villages of Fira and Oia in the morning. You should also pay attention to the streets as the traffic will be quite heavy.
