Cruise Lines International Association, the leading voice of the global cruise community, today released the 2022 State of the Cruise Industry Outlook report.
The annual report shows how the industry has continued to resume responsibly with proven protocols that are leading the way, underscores the value of cruise tourism to local communities and national economies around the world, and charts the industry’s continued progress towards achieving carbon neutrality.
The 2022 State of the Cruise Industry Outlook report provides an opportunity to reflect on how far our industry has come as CLIA ocean-going cruise lines have welcomed more than six million guests onboard since resuming operations in July 2020.
Kelly Craighead, president and CEO of CLIA said while their focus on health and safety remains absolute, the industry is also leading the way in environmental sustainability and destination stewardship.
Coastal and maritime tourism is an important economic driver. They continue to work in partnership with cruise destinations so that communities thrive from responsible tourism.
Our members are also investing in new technologies and new ships and pursuing the goal of net carbon neutral cruising by 2050.
The 2022 outlook report also features reflections from cruise industry partners and community members around the world.
