The Asian cruise sector is about to start an exciting phase of growth with vast possibility, as majority of it remains undiscovered. In recent times, Asia is rapidly emerging as the new growth frontier in terms of world cruise tourism, both as a source market as well as a cruise destination with China making the progress along with other countries in the region including India.
The dawn of the Asian cruise, Genting Hong Kong is here and its Genting Cruise Lines division, comprising the Star Cruises, Dream Cruises and Crystal Cruises, carry on to be at the front, stimulating the Asian cruise tourism sector. The Star Cruises, company’s founding cruise line brand, had succeeded and constructed the Asian cruise industry ever since 1993, launching a series of ‘Firsts’ all over the region. Nowadays Genting Cruise Lines offers a broad range of products from contemporary cruises to ultra-luxurious vacation experience across the sea to the air worldwide.
Though tourism is representing as one of the fastest growing sectors in the world, cruising is attaining a greater share in the global ‘tourism pie’. India has powerful opportunities to seize the market share for itself. In India, the expansion impetus of the local cruise market as a source market as well as a cruise destination has been quite optimistic.
