Cruise in Asia – a consumer’s perspective

This number is set to increase in the longer term as we see more than 120 new cruise ships launched in the next decade. Cruises range from smaller vessels with fewer than 200 berths to ships capable of carrying more than 5,000 passengers, serving the diverse needs and desires of our customers.

Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) and its cruise line members will discuss ships of all sizes and help you understand what’s best for your customer.  You’ll hear about the latest trends and get tips on how to increase your cruise profits.
