In general, the total number of tourists visiting the Caribbean island always increased during the whole period. Additionally, the figure for visitors staying on cruise ships was lower than that for those choosing to stay on the island during most of the period.

In 2010, the total quantity of tourists traveling to the Caribbean island stood at exactly 1 million, with 75.000 of them opting for staying on the island, whereas the rest decided to stay on cruise ships. Over the following 2 years, while there was an insignificant drop to reach the lowest point of just below 0.25 million in the number of visitors staying on cruise ships, staying on the island was still a more popular choice with 1.25 million visitors.

In the final year, the Caribbean island witnessed a sharp rise to 3.5 million in the total number of visitors. Likewise, the number of tourists who stayed on cruise ships experienced a sharp increase to precisely 2 million, surpassing the figure for those staying on the island (1.5 million).
