One of the fastest growing leisure industry sectors, the cruise industry faces many challenges. While supply continues to grow at double-digit levels, demand struggles to keep pace. Given the demands on infrastructure and the risk of an eroding on-shore experience, fewer ports are in a position to accommodate the cruise lines as supply grows. At the same time, the public sector's scrutiny of industry practices related to the environment, taxation, security, safety and labor mounts. Despite these challenges, many cruise lines report record levels of profitability.

To help our clients meet these and other challenges, PwC Hospitality & Leisure specialists provide industry services to cruise companies, industry associations, governments, destinations, prospective investors and lenders.
