A Recession-Resilient Industry: Cruise Lines

The news wires have been full of cruise ship stories in the wake of Carnival Cruises’ Splendor, which was disabled Monday by an engine fire, and slowly towed into San Diego Bay. But they are not talking about the investment angle.

While the cruise ship market is young and concentrated in the hands of three companies, the industry’s fundamentals are positive. In fact, cruise lines are spending $14 billion on 24 new ships in the next two years. That’s on top of $5 billion spent in 2009, and it amounts to a 26% increase in capacity. That spells opportunity.

Your thoughts on “A Recession-Resilient Industry: Cruise Lines”

  1. good story…I am a little bit leary of the American cruise lines with our ailing economy. Are the ships increase due to lower cruise price promotions or is it because people want to vacation more that way. This past year I have seen cruise prices like they were 20 yrs ago. Do you think that the Norwegion would be a better investment, because like you stated a lower US dollar is coming?

  2. Dear Rudy, I work in a related job associated with the cruise industry. One only has to be in the port when these ships leave the U.S. to see that they R not full of passengers.
