In a travel Agent survey conducted in 2017 an estimated 32 percent of cruise sellers admitted that their land-based sales including hotel bookings, beach stays, all-inclusive resorts, city packages, and escorted tours were set to decrease the following year, while 40 percent were not sure whether sales will increase or decrease.
Another 2018 CLIA survey anticipated that 83% of travel clients will spend more in future, and on average, travelers will spend more per person on a cruise than on FIT.
The survey went further to report that combined revenues from cruise bookings with higher commissions from cruise lines will be higher at 70-108% compared to FITs.
