Cruise Industry Overview - 2013

State of the Cruise Industry

The 2012 year-end passenger forecast is that a record 20.3 million passengers cruised globally during the year, with 17.182 million sailing from North America, including 11.684 million who live in the U.S. and Canada. Coupled with an annual occupancy percentage that exceeded 102%, this annual passenger growth for 2012 shows continued consumer interest in cruising and an industry where demand continues to outstrip supply.

In 2012 alone, 13 new ships debuted from FCCA and/or CLIA Member Lines, presenting new options for guest capacities ranging from 32 to 3,690—totaling 17,774 at double occupancy—to sail the world’s waters for the first time.


In 2013, the growth of the cruise industry continues as we enter an era distinguished by an additional 11 innovative, feature-rich ships, international ports-of-call and convenient departures from proximal embarkation cities. The current cruise ship order book from 2013-2016 includes 26 new ships (14 ocean-going vessels and 12 riverboats/coastal vessels) from FCCA and/or CLIA Member Lines, with over 48,000 berths and a capital investment of value of over $9.5 billion.

Based on known ship additions and deletions, the industry forecasts 20.97 million passengers to cruise globally in 2013, with 17.6 million of these guests predicted to sail from North America (11.79 million sourced from North America and about a third—5.8 million—comprised of international passengers). This represents a 2.5% increase over 2012’s figures and commensurate with the added capacity.

The industry’s success is headlined by the Caribbean, which continues to rank as the dominant cruise destination, accounting for 37.3% of all global itineraries in 2013. The Caribbean continues to have the leading share of cruise industry capacity, although there has been growth in all global cruise regions.
