Cruises to Hawaii on the Rise…

Posted on 24 January 2012

While airlift to Hawaii has increased significantly over the last year, the Washington Post is reporting that the islands’ cruise industry is also on the rise.

 

More than 104,000 travelers arrived in the islands on cruise ships—mostly from the West Coast—in the first 11 months of last year, the report says, noting that this is a 14.5 percent increase from the same period in 2010. Fifty-nine cruise liners pulled into Hawaiian ports during that time, an increase of 11.3 percent.

 

The industry still hasn’t recouped a pre-recession peak of about 130,000 passengers reached in 2007, but demand for West Coast to Hawaii cruises is strong.
