The cruise and packaged travel segments are entirely leisure-driven, and remain the two key segments where traditional travel agents are the most important distribution partners. Because of the overlap in demographics and distribution, cruise and packaged travel companies compete for business. But they also complement one another, as packaged travel companies provide pre- and post-stays to cruise lines. In 2017, the U.S. cruise and package segments grew 5% and 3%, respectively. This report provides complete sizing and analysis on the U.S. cruise and packaged travel segments, including online versus offline bookings, distribution dynamics, OTA versus supplier dynamics and projections through 2021.
