The Current Situation of Cruise Tourism in the World: Our Perspective

mayo 19, 2024

Hello everyone! Today we want to share with you our perspective on the current state of cruise tourism in the world. With years of experience offering tours in Cartagena and Murcia, we have seen how cruises have evolved, especially in recent times. Here are our thoughts on how we are navigating these changes.

Post-COVID-19 Recovery in Cruise Tourism

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on cruise tourism was significant. The suspension of operations and widespread uncertainty deeply affected the industry. However, resilience has been key to recovery.

  • Health and Safety Protocols on Cruises: Cruise companies have implemented strict health and safety protocols, including COVID-19 testing, vaccinations, and enhanced hygiene measures. This ensures that cruise travel is safer than ever.
  • Increase in Cruise Bookings: With the lifting of restrictions, we have seen a notable increase in bookings. Travelers are eager to enjoy new adventures at sea again.

Emerging Trends in Cruise Tourism

We have identified several emerging trends in the cruise tourism industry that are redefining the traveler experience.

  • Sustainable Cruises: Sustainability is a priority. Cruise lines are adopting cleaner technologies and eco-friendly fuels to minimize their environmental impact.
  • Personalized Experiences on Cruises: Passengers are increasingly seeking unique and personalized experiences, from tailor-made excursions to exclusive services.
  • Popularity of Themed Cruises: Themed cruises are on the rise. They offer activities focused on gastronomy, wellness, adventure, and cultural events, attracting a variety of interests.

Economic and Social Impact of Cruise Tourism

Cruise tourism is an essential economic engine for many coastal regions and tourist destinations.

  • Job Generation in the Cruise Industry: The industry creates numerous jobs, both aboard ships and in visited destinations, significantly contributing to local economic development.
  • Development of Cruise Infrastructure: Investments in port and coastal city infrastructure improve local facilities and attract more tourists.
  • Managing the Social Impact of Cruise Tourism: It is crucial to address the social impacts of mass tourism and protect local communities to ensure sustainable development.

Future Perspectives of Cruise Tourism

The future of cruise tourism looks promising and full of innovations.

  • Technological Innovation in Cruises: The adoption of advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things (IoT), will enhance passenger experience and operational efficiency.
  • Exploration of New Cruise Destinations: Cruise lines are expanding their reach to exotic and less traditional destinations, offering new adventures to experienced travelers.
  • Focus on Health and Wellness Onboard Cruises: The demand for health and wellness services, such as spas, gyms, and fitness programs, is increasing, becoming an integral part of the cruise experience.


Cruise tourism is in an exciting process of transformation. With a renewed focus on health, sustainability, and personalized experiences, we are confident that this industry will sail back strongly. At The Best Day Tours, we are committed to staying updated with these trends to offer you the best experiences and tours in Cartagena and Murcia during your next cruise vacation.
