Trends in Alaskan Cruising
Abstract:This study analyzes and interprets both spatial and economic data regarding the Alaskan cruise market between 1994 and 2003. Eight research questions guide the research effort toward providing a better understanding of variations occurring in ship size, ship age, number of passengers, cruise line participation, embarkation and debarkation ports, ports-of-call, visits to scenic sites, and passenger fares. The status, trends, and future prospect for Alaskan cruising, based on substantial growth identified, bode well for the Alaskan geographic cruise market.
