Colombia takes a lead in the cruise industry! Over the past six years there has been an exponential increase in the number of cruise ships that have been arriving Colombia’s ports. Records show that both cruises and the number of passengers have more than tripled since 2006 growing from 53 landfalls to 166 in 2012. Number of passengers went from 65,111 to 260,404. Overall, this boom in the cruise market has meant very good things for Colombia’s economy. The cruise and international that events that have arisen from this boom have fueled the growth of international tourism. If the traction continues to steadily grow, this could potentially put Colombia as a major player in the industry. So far in 2013, the country has signed on many deals that provide the country with surefire sustainability that have lead to a total projected 16% increase from last year’s projections. Carnival Cruise and Disney Cruise have already begun to restart their business with Cartagena. Even the very exclusive, Japan Asuka is broke its “no repeating rule” back in 2012. We hope the the buzz continues and so many more people can experience Colombia’s beauty!
