Next year will see the launch of a host of new flagship vessels, including Spirit of Adventure, Celebrity Apex, Scarlet Lady, and MSC Virtuosa. Future Cruise writers go head to head in our February issue to argue which ships will make the most striking presence in this perpetually growing industry.
Europe’s largest shipbuilder Fincantieri is currently subject to a European Commission anti-trust review over plans to acquire French competitor Chantiers de l'Atlantique. Could this move harm competition for large cruise ship companies as the EC claims?
We take a closer look at two emerging regions in the world of cruise; the Port of Vancouver, which recently claimed that 2019 could be its largest ever season for cruise passengers; and Australia, where cruise reportedly contributed A$5.2 billion ($3.6 billion) to the country’s coffers during the 2018-2019 financial year.
Finally, we take a closer look at a new cruise ship designed to prevent seasickness; analyse the potential of hydrogen as an alternative fuel in shipping, and give an onboard perspective of MSC Grandiosa, launched this November.
