Core dashboard information
Both sets of figures count unique passengers in each year ending 30 June, with controls to count passengers that undertake multiple voyages only once. For the Stats NZ figures, these are based on unique passport numbers taken from Advanced Passenger Information data sourced from Customs NZ, as supplied by cruise ships . The only difference in the NZ Cruise Association/Market Economics figures is that they also capture passengers on domestic voyages (e.g. comedy cruises, wine and food cruises and some Sub Antarctic cruises), who do not pass through immigration control.
