TD breaking news – Australian cruise market grows 15%

CLIA confirms almost 1.06 million Australian ocean cruise passengers in 2015.

Cruise Lines International Association Australasia has just released its much-anticipated industry statistics for 2015, with commercial director Brett Jardine saying 1,058,781 Australians took an ocean cruise last year.

Australia was the only global cruise source market to report a market penetration in excess of 4%, with 4.5% of Australians taking a cruise, and the figures confirming an increase of 135,000 ocean going Australian cruise passengers in the last 12 months.

Australians spent 10.4 million days at sea, and an average of 9.8 days per cruise with the figures also revealing that Europe remains the number one long-haul ocean cruise destination for Aussies, and is now larger than New Zealand.

The figures this year do not incorporate river cruising, due to CLIA globally aligning the reports across all of its key markets.

More details in today’s issues of Travel Daily and Cruise Weekly.
