Cruise Lines Add Asia Capacity

Costa calls in TianjinA number of major cruise lines have built up their capacity in the Asia-Pacific region, according to the 2015-2016 Cruise Industry News Annual Report.

The biggest mover is Royal Caribbean, growing by just over 50 percent in the market, followed closely by Costa Croicere and Princess. While Princess’ Asia capacity will be up 15 percent this year, a third ship from Costa will see the Italian brand grow its year-over-year capacity in the market by 35 percent.

On a smaller scale, AIDA Cruises will double its Asia capacity this year, growing by nearly 100 percent to carry over 20,000 passengers in the region.
