The cruise industry is continuously developing, both in terms of expenditures and number of tourists. It also has a significant impact on other economic sectors. For instance, just in Europe, the direct economic impact of the European Cruise Sector was in 2013 of more than 15,000 Million euros.
Considering the evolutions in the last years, the growth potential is also significant.
