China will be world’s top cruise market, says Carnival’s Donald

China will soon be the world’s largest cruise market, according to the boss of the world’s largest cruise company.

Speaking with China Daily newspaper, Carnival’s ceo Arnold Donald said: “The Chinese market is small today. But it will grow quickly.” He said Carnival’s cruise capacity in China is expected to grow by 140% from 2013 to 2015.

“We received half a million guests on our ships last year. We expect to have millions in the future.”

The Carnival comments come a couple of weeks after Royal Caribbean’s ceo Richard Fain revealed that China is RCCL’s fastest-growing market.
