Cruising is a very fast growing segment. A good economy is feeding the trend to sailing. Figures of 25 million worldwide passengers is predicted for 2018.

Giant floating cities with over 7,000 souls-on-board are taking a big chunk of folks on their lifetime treat.

While the senior crowd is well … dying off …the lines are targeting the older millenials who are starting to run companies. This crowd is spending.

I live near Google and the salaries are astronomical. A lot of Ferraris are sold in Silicon Valley.

As a result, when they plan a vacation they go top banana. Ultra-luxury. I speak on many classes of ships – Ultra luxury is the way to go…if you can get it free. I do. I give talks. You can to. We’ll teach you.

To show you the market share of this segment, Cruise Industry News has come out with their forecasted ranking.

Backstory: Learn how to be a speaker on ships

As can see, Viking is pushing hard to overtake the traditional leaders, Crystal, SilverSea, Seabourn, Oceania. Viking will be have 18 ships by then.

Viking has spent big bucks to penetrate hard. NEW ships seem to be rolling out every 6 months. They have owned the river boat market and want to dominate the high seas.

To get a slot, you need to be a destination speaker. They don’t want enrichment talks. Boo – that’s my forte.
