The secondhand cruise ship market has traditionally been highlighted by two to three eight- to nine-figure transactions on an annual basis.
As the existing cruise fleet grows larger and ages, the secondhand market was expected to grow minimally, as the pool of qualified buyers is limited in scope.
COVID-19, however, sent a shockwave through the world, and turned the secondhand ship market upside down over night.
Cruise Industry News tracks the second hand cruise ship market, including vessel sales and key charters, along with ship withdrawals, with data extending back to 1983 in the Cruise Ship Secondhand Market Report.
