South African Cruise Tourism - Prospect, Benefits and Strategies (PDF, 4.8mb)
Cruise travel is one of the fastest growing sectors of the global tourism industry. Once small and localized, the cruise industry has grown into a sophisticated, multi-billion dollar enterprise with a wide assortment of products to offer vacation consumers. The cruise lines fueling industry growth have not been the sole recipients of the economic benefits generated by their efforts; for strategically located destinations with port and tourism infrastructure capable of accommodating cruise ship activities, the economic benefits derived from cruise ship homeport and port-of-call operations are sizable. These favorable economic benefits, coupled with other intangible contributions, are the central reasons why many communities are actively marketing and enhancing their destinations and welcoming cruise ship operators and passengers.
