Caribbean Cruise Capacity Levels Off For 2015

Open Jaw

Caribbean market capacity will level off for the 2015 calendar year, slightly dipping due to ship movements, according to the 2015-2016 Cruise Industry News Annual Report.

After a record breaking 9.1 million passenger performance in 2014, up from 8 million passengers in 2013, the Caribbean cruise market will dip to an estimated 8.75 million for the 2015 season.

The main driver of the slight decrease has been a few ship movements, including sending the Allure of the Seas to Europe. In addition, some operators are offering longer cruises and a few vessels were moved to Asia and Australia, thus offsetting capacity spikes from new tonnage.
