The Florida-Caribbean Association (FCCA) announced that the 2017-2018 cruise year brought record economic contributions to the region, despite the historic hurricane season.

According to the study released by Business Research & Economic Advisors (BREA), Economic Contribution of Cruise Tourism to the Destination Economies, cruise tourism directly generated $3.36 billion in total cruise tourism expenditures-more than six percent higher than the record set by the previous study in 2015-along with nearly 79,000 jobs paying more than $900 million in wage income in the 36 participating destinations.
