Comprehensive Private Data on Cruise Demand and Booking Trends

Free Evaluation of Archived Data for Qualified Market Analysts

CruiseCompete is in a unique position to collect detailed data* that is predictive of future cruise line revenues well in advance of public data releases.

The process of shopping for and booking a cruise generally takes consumers several weeks if not longer, and the bookings themselves are made many months in advance of sailings.

Qualified analysts may receive and validate our archived data vs. past market trends at no cost. Annual data subscriptions are available at $20,000 per year.

1. Consumer demand.

CruiseCompete is an online cruise marketplace where consumers request quotes on specific cruise sailings, and receive competing offers from more than 500 independent member travel agencies. The data is very robust, with monthly request volume ranging from about 20,000 to 30,000 individual cruise quote requests.

The data points in an individual quote request include the cruise line, ship, sail date, itinerary length, cruise region, cabin types, departure port and number and age categories of passengers. All data is archived for comparisons to previous months/years.

We currently collect data on 46 cruise lines. You can find the full list here.

2. Consumer booking trends.

A key statistic on the health of a cruise line's business is the booking window: the average number of days between the time a customer books and when the ship sails. As the window shrinks, so does the demand pool (as fewer people can travel on limited notice and airfares tend to increase), so shorter windows generally mean lower cruise rates. Based on bookings via the CruiseCompete system, cruise booking window data can be derived by cruise line and by cruise region. We also have data on actual cruise fares, which can differ significantly from advertised rates on certain cruise lines.

Data is offered on an annual subscription basis for $20,000/year. If you would like to see a data sample or to test archived data against cruise line performance, please contact us for additional information.

*Note: This data subscription does not include any personally-identifiable information about our users or customers.
