Description topics

Cruise passengers
Cruise tourism:
Cruise tourism is a type of tourism (outside their usual environment), where people spend for their pleasure at least one night on a ship during (a part of) their trip. The cruise ship calls at more than two ports on a set schedule during the entire cruise. If the ship only sails back and forth between two ports, it is a ferry. The cruise can take place both at sea and in inland waters.

Cruise passenger:
A cruise passenger is a visitor (tourist) who makes part or all of his or her journey on a cruise ship (see definition of cruise tourism).
