China Cruise market Shrinking, Alaska and Europe growing.

If the prices drop I could see a China cruise in my future.

Thanks for posting the information.

Hmmm a slow boat to China?

I know that NCL will be sending a smaller older ship to that market instead of the Joy which was built specifically for that market. The Joy will instead service Alaska among other markets.

The Asian Market and China is not getting smaller it is growing. Yes NCL has done a pull back but other lines are sending more ships and bigger ships. Asia is now the third largest market, and the fastest growing. The pull back of NCL will have very little effect here. Both Royal and Carnival Corporation are adding ships and cruises to Asia, If the China market could get just 1/4 the penetration the US market has it would be the largest cruise market in the World. Also remember India has great future cruise growth and is in Asia, adding to the growth here.
