The cruise industry is one of the most important growth sectors in the tourism market. During recent decades, cruise tourism has seen enormous growth in both passenger numbers and destinations. The downside of this growth is the impact on environment and fragile ecosystem of many destinations. Associating the paradigm of sustainable development with the practice of cruise tourism might represent a solution to the problems faced by the industry. However, much remains to be done to balance the rapidly growing demand for cruising with its impacts and environmental values.
