The Big Players Losing out!

This is surpurising news to most Travelers. Major cruise brands such as Royal Caribbean Cruises, Carnival Cruise Lines and Holland America Line have lost market share in 2011 despite a string of new builds and new ship classes introduced throughout the year, data provided in Travel Weekly's 2011 Travel Industry Leading Survey show. Meanwhile, "other" cruise suppliers -- including the rapidly growing river-cruise business including Amawaterways  -- have taken a larger portion of the market share.
