#Cruise Tourism: reset and restart

After months of passion, cruise tourism starts with extreme caution but decisively to restart. It is a fundamental sector in itself for the Economy of the Sea and the Campania and Italian maritime cluster, but it also represents a very important factor for the coastal tourism economy and increasingly also for the interior areas one. The ports and local authorities have understood this for some time now and have activated actions and incentives in its favor.


  • Cruise companies programs for the last quarter of 2020 and the 2021 season
  • Resilient cruises, the new normal
  • Cruises and ports: preparing for the new generations of ships
  • Ground infrastructures for the management of tourist flows: from basic transit routes to secure portals with added value
