Cruise full recovery expected in 2023

Operations and market outlook


94% of the global fleet back in operation at the end of September 20221, with load factors approaching pre-pandemic levels


▪ Major cruise lines dropped vaccine requirements and eased pre-boarding Covid rules


▪ Value proposition gap between cruises and land-based holidays further shifting towards cruising during the pandemic. As a result, lately, few hotel brands expanded their business in the cruise sector


Booking trends for 2023 in line with 2019 levels, for some companies at higher net yields


Passenger volumes expected to recover and surpass 2019 levels by the end of 20232 with a target of 30 mln pax, pre-Covid volumes




Net carbon neutrality for cruise industry by 20503 and 40% reduction of average CO2 intensity per tonne/mile required by International Maritime Organization (IMO) regulations by 2030 vs 2008


Alternative fuels: shipowners increasingly interested in green propulsion systems, in particular hydrogen-powered zero-emission solutions, for a fully decarbonized cruise industry


Shore-side power connectivity: 209 ships expected in operation by 20283,  including ships already fitted, ships planned to be retrofitted and 98% of ships on order book through 2028
