Session 6 - Adventure and expedition cruising Dave Snow

  1. 1. Adventure and Expedition Cruising... What’s Your Edge? The Small Ship Market
  2. 2. Our edge is the wonders of Newfoundland and Labrador .
  3. 8. Our Challenges <ul><li>the world economy, </li></ul><ul><li>limited supply of expedition ships </li></ul><ul><li>Arctic and Antarctic commitments send ships to Newfoundland/Labrador during our shoulder season </li></ul><ul><li>We are an old land but a new cruise product in many minds – we still need to be marketing – kudos to CINA and CANAL </li></ul>
  4. 9. Community expectations need to be realistic <ul><li>will not solve unemployment </li></ul><ul><li>cruise lines will not pave your roads </li></ul><ul><li>some cruises to Newfoundland and Labrador are economy cruises </li></ul><ul><li>Expedition ships can bring several person days of work and days of strong sales in your shops </li></ul>
  5. 10. Our provincial edge is that we can deliver a wonderful vacation <ul><li>Communities need to understand the military type timing and scheduling that sometimes goes hand in hand with the friendly cruiser approach – most visits are too short and don’t give the passengers the chance to visit all the shops </li></ul><ul><li>Need to accept that a visit makes the best advantage of the weather and time budget </li></ul>
  6. 11. <ul><li>Our Wildland edge is communications with our guides, coordinators, and vessels. With trained guides, and a realistic sense of expectations and timing, and the occasional helping hand from the weather this province delivers outstanding experiences. </li></ul><ul><li>Occasionally passengers return to tour on their own or even tour with us. Some select cruises with different ports. </li></ul>
