The capacity of ocean cruise going vessels is rising steadily and the ‘Oasis’ or ‘Allure of the Seas’ were definitely not the last big projects the shipyards had to build. Even despite the economic turmoil of 2009, the cruise industry is continuing to grow, with a growth rate of in average 6.5% per year. And the industry is not predicted to mature soon; analysts and professionals see healthy growth through 2012 and especially when looking at the order book of ships for delivery until 2014, it can be seen that until now the term “growth” is not just a trendy word used lately in this industry, but a positive and secular determinant for our economy.
