A Few More Cruise Industry Facts


More than 10,000,000 people take a cruise vacation annually.  Of those, approximately  80 percent of these people will cruise in North American waters.

Ports of call

There are more than two thousand ports of call around the globe that cruise ships can travel to.

Most Popular Departure Ports

Miami, Port Canaveral, and Fort Lauderdale in the State of Florida make up at least half of all the departure ports where passengers begin their cruise holiday.  This of course being the main gateway to the Caribbean!


For many seasoned cruisers, the ports of call are not their main destination, but the actual ship itself and the on board luxuries the ship offers.

Cruise length

The average length of a cruise taken is slightly over seven days. My favorite has always been 10 to 14 for value and because the time goes oh so fast!

Cruise Ship Population

There are more than three hundred cruise ships at any given place around the world. Together, they can jointly carry over 300,000 passengers, each and every day of the year.
