US<.> arrivals in Greece fell by around 10 percent in 1999 compared to last year, when the country hosted 219,362 American visitors. The Hellenic Tourism Organisation's (EOT<.>) North and South America branch attributed this drop to a lack of travel and congress incentives. The improvement in numbers seen after September is expected to address part of the decrease in arrivals.

It must be noted, however, that the abovementioned figures do not take into account passengers on cruises, a form of travel particularly favoured by Americans. Indeed, cruiseship passengers will likely be the driving force behind the expected rise in the number of US arrivals next year. However, airline will also play a major role as demand for air travel to Greece currently outweighs supply.

The vast majority of Americans who visited Greece in 1999 organised their trip through the companies Tourlite International, Homeric Tours, Orient Lines, Royal Olympic Cruises and Renaissance Cruises.
