Abstract:

"Cruises are traditionally thought of as luxury holidays for the pampered few but The Development and Growth of the Cruise Industry exposes the myth and gives readers an understanding of their importance in the travel market. The book covers the various types of cruises (fly cruising, cruise and stay, special interest cruises, for example), the types of ships (design to green issues) and the motivation of passengers (quality versus price). It takes a forward looking approach assessing trends, past 2000 with the probable polarization of the market, its growth prospects and potential limiting factors."--BOOK JACKET.
