Increase in Local Tourism, Cruise Ships Arrive in Lyttelton

Lyttelton Harbor will play host to a steady influx of cruise ships over the next two weeks. More than 14,000 tourists are expected, mainly from the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia. Christchurch and Canterbury Tourism note that numbers of cruise visitors to the region have jumped by three times that of three years ago, from 35,000 to this year's anticipated 100,000. It is estimated that last year's cruise visitors directly contributed $22.7 million to the Canterbury economy.
