The cruise industry is on the verge of a golden age for a cruise line, the one that is in the midst of an historic revival and is hoping to make the most of its new and improved technology.
The International Cruise Lines Association (ICLA) said that it is in negotiations to sell off the last remaining ships from its fleet and is seeking a buyer for the remaining fleet.
ICLA said that the cruise industry has had an upswing in recent years, with cruise lines bringing in $5.5 billion in revenue in 2016.
There are still a few of the older ships that are retired, but the fleet is shrinking.
It is not known what the buyers will pay, but they have the opportunity to do it in a way that allows them to have a bigger share of the profits in the future, said Brian Hirsch, president of ICLA.
We’ve been at the point where we have to do something about that.
I would expect that the new owners are going to have to pay a lot more, which is a good thing because it allows us to keep that momentum going, he said.
A lot of this is being done to get better technology and a lot of that is being driven by demand.
The ships are aging and the cruise lines have to make sure that the people that they are selling to stay healthy.
I think the cruise line business has been hit very hard in recent times, especially in the last few years, Hirsch said.
But I think it’s been the right time to take a new look at the business and it’s something that I think the industry is ready for.
The cruise lines are making tremendous profits and it is a time to think about how we can improve the way we do business, Hisch said.
