Unfortunately I don't think you'll get a useable answer.
Information on the various websites is notoriously inaccurate and/or incomplete.
And the times that ships are there are important too - if for example your ship arrives at 2pm you won't be impacted by a ship which leaves within the next couple of hours or more..

Ship-sponsored excursions are tendered to a different jetty - where the road comes down to the sea - so aren't affected by lines to go up the cliff at Fira.
It's way more difficult to fix a timing for a private tour, but the tour provider will know the problem and will likely give best advice.

For returning to the tender pier the line for the cablecar isn't a problem if you are tolerably fit - you can walk down in about 25 minutes

The cruisemapper web site shows dates well into next year.
I also did some research, looking here on CC for all ships that would be sailing the Med. with a stop at Santorini during that time-frame.
We are lucky that the cruise we have on deposit should be the only ship at Santorini while we are there!
I believe I also found some info that a small European ship would be there. But, a ship that small shouldn't be a big impact.

It can take some research and time, but it is possible to get a pretty good idea of how many ships will be there, even for dates several months ahead.
