Deployed Capacity Share
This year is poised to reach new heights and records, with a forecast of 30 million sailing the oceans on FCCA and CLIA member cruise lines – a 6.4 percent increase over 2018. Driven by 10 new vessels—adding more than 37,000 lower berths and representing an investment of $7.6 billion—launching in 2019 from FCCA Member Lines alone, the record cruise guests will have the world as their gangway, with nearly 1,000 ports. They will also hail from around the world, with universal growth in global source markets throughout the years—and particular increases from 2016 to 2017 including Canada at 15 percent, China at more than 14 percent and Germany increasing 10 percent.
