Global cruise industry revenue - additional information

The revenue of the global cruise industry was forecasted to reach almost 40 billion U.S. dollars by 2015. After dipping to just under 25 billion U.S. dollars in 2009 as a result of the global recession, the industry’s revenue has increased gradually year-on-year, despite suffering some unfortunate incidents in recent years.

In 2015, Carnival, of Carnival Corporation, had a forecasted passenger capacity of approximately 62 thousand. In that same year, Carnival held the largest share of the global cruise industry revenue, with a market share of 42.2 percent.

In 2015, the cruise industry carried over 23 million passengers worldwide and this figure was forecasted to rise to 25.3 million by 2017. Over half of the guests in the global cruise industry originate from North America. In 2015, the average cruise revenue per passenger amounted to 2,208 U.S. dollars – over half of which came from the cost of the cruise ticket. The average onboard spending of a cruise passenger was 429 U.S. dollars.
