Many small island nations heavily rely on cruise lines, which in turn have a positive effect on their economy. Each year 2 billion USD are contributed to the Caribbean, 5.9 percent of entire GDP to some nations.
Cruise passengers are willing to spend more on activities such as beach tours, off-road/scenic tours or in duty-free shopping on many island nations. Additionally, many food suppliers are dependent on the cruise industry, for which they provide seafood, meat and vegetables.
Florida is the busiest cruise destination on the planet and Miami Port is the busiest cruise port in the world by traffic. Cozumel in Mexico is, with 4.3 million cruise passengers, the busiest cruise port in the world measured in arriving cruise passengers. Cruises in Asia, including China, have become a booming industry and almost every single one of those itineraries includes Shanghai or Singapore.
