MIAMI BEACH — Sobering international events such as political uprisings, an economic recession and even rising fuel prices weren’t enough to stop people from vacationing last year. Cruising remained a popular option, with more people taking cruises in 2010 than ever before. The cruise industry forecasts another strong year in 2011 despite the known and as yet untold crises the world faces. Last year, 15 million people went on cruises and the industry is expecting a 6.5 percent increase this year to 16 million. They will be riding on a fleet that’s growth by 35 new ships over the last year, including the Carnival Dream at Port Canaveral, according to Jan Swartz, executive vice president of sales, marketing and customer service for Princess Cruises and Cunard Line who also serves as marketing committee chairwoman for Cruise Lines International Association, the industry’s leading trade group. Many existing ships were also upgraded or refurbished. And even still, cruising remains an untapped market. Only 3 percent of Americans cruised last year, according CLIA, which means lots of growth potential for cruise companies.
