The popularity of cruising continues to soar, with an estimated 30 million travelers taking to the water in 2019, a 6 percent increase over 2018, according to Cruise Lines International Association.

Whether you’re looking to cruise for the first time or are a repeat cruiser, these trends can help you choose where to sail next.

  • Cruise lines are adding new itineraries, enhancements and ships to offer more choices. Among the news is the start of the $500 million fleetwide modernization by Celebrity Cruises, including Celebrity Millennium, Celebrity Summit and Celebrity Equinox. Six more ships are slated to be modernized by 2023.
  • In February, Disney Cruise Line will have a ship based in Louisiana, with cruises to the Caribbean, Bahamas and Panama Canal setting off from New Orleans.
  • Princess Cruises’ newest ship, Sky Princess, debuts in the Mediterranean in October.
  • Fresh from a complete renovation, Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas sails out of Cape Liberty, N.J., in May 2020. It heads to the Bahamas in summer 2020, visiting the new Perfect Day at CocoCay private island.
