Following the economic footprint of a Cruise Ship

No 262580, Working Papers from National University of Ireland, Galway, Socio-Economic Marine Research Unit

Abstract: The cruise industry has the potential to generate enormous revenue for port cities however there are some challenges to this revenue stream. These challenges are very apparent here in Ireland in recent years. As ships increase in size tendering becomes less feasible. This paper investigates how passenger tendering rather than berthing in Irish ports affects possible economic benefit from the cruise industry. The paper also examines how port facilities affect the overall passenger experience. Is passenger spending restricted? Using four Irish ports as case studies and a survey of passengers of 1 cruise ship visiting all four ports this paper seeks to identify the difference between passenger spending at tender and non-tender ports.
