The Eurostat data below from 2011 includes both ferry and cruise ship passenger data.  It is interesting to note that despite completion of the Chunnel between the United Kingdom and France, Dover remains the busiest passenger seaport in Europe and Calais is the fifth busiest. While many of the seaports listed are located on resort and holiday islands (Capri, Malta, Spanish and Greek Isles), several are very large urban centers, such as Helsinki, Stockholm, and Napoli.

  • Dover, United Kingdom = 12.9 million
