The cruise industry has surpassed 2015 ocean cruise passenger projections and has increased expectations for 2016 – a sign the business is stronger than ever, according to Cruise Lines International Association.

The organization reported a total of 23.2 million passengers on ocean cruises globally in 2015, up from a projection of 23 million, and a 4-percent increase over 2014.

The average growth per year, statistics show, is 7.4 percent. The annual revenue for the U.S. economy is more than $37.8 billion.

No one can argue against taking a vacation. But when there is a chance to go on an all-inclusive trip where you can see dozens of locations without repacking even once, the argument for going on a cruise becomes stronger. Convenience is not the sole motivation.

Don’t be discouraged by some of the potential side effects of being a ship for a few days such as getting seasick or feeling claustrophobic. While possible, they are extremely rare. The pluses, on the other hand, of such a retreat, are guaranteed.
