Asia Cruise Trends 2018 Edition

whitePaper | May 29, 2018

Asian sourced cruise passenger numbers hit another record high in 2017 with 4.052M taking an ocean cruise (up 20.6%). While mainland China posted a much slower growth than in previous years, it maintained its dominance in 2017, accounting for 59% of all Asian passengers.

In 2018, overall cruise capacity deployed in Asia will show a small decline of 2% versus the planned ship calls in the prior year. However, the outlook for Asia remains positive for future growth, as many cruise lines continue to deploy significant capacity in the region, including brand new, large cruise ships purpose-built for Asian consumers.
