Cruise Line Goes Down

Posted on Jul 26, 2020. by NTI

Cruising isn't what it used to be. Just ask George Michael. Cruise Lines International Association, the world's largest such association, reported that, in 2019, more than 32 million travellers chose cruising as their preferred mode of holidaying, up 6% from 28.2 million in 2018. How much does a cruise liner cost? Well, what sort do you want? I am sure there will be loads coming onto the market around now, and if you go for 'large' rather then 'ridiculously large', you can expect to pay around £650 million. If you can keep your payload down to about 2,000-3,000 passengers, a new liner off the shelf will set you back about £425 million, and they'll even chuck in an iceberg and an on-deck band. Eighteen spanking new liners joined the fleets of the various lines last year and from around March they were all sitting pretty in wet and dry docks somewhere around the world
