    Call for papers:

    Journal

    Etudes Caribéennes, n°19 /2011

    “Cruise tourism: location dynamics and development issues”.

    The objective of this special issue is to present an overview of the cruise industry

    worldwide, to study the spatial and economic logic, and analyze the issues for the

    regions. Beyond the picture postcard landscapes which depict the cruise tourism,

    emphasis should be placed on the development issues surrounding this growing

    economic sector, to analyze recent developments in cruise routes and to identify typical

    places of the cruise.

    A cruise, which was long reserved for the elite who had time and money, was opened

    up to a mass clientele through commercial offerings targeting middle and upper classes

    residing in rich countries and some emerging countries. This development was

    accompanied by gigantic new ships, a rationalization of routes, and a choice of stops

    with cost optimization, in tune with the increasingly mobile sources of capital. The

    product "cruising" has changed dramatically in the space of two decades, where now the

    ship itself becomes the "destination" and the primary attraction of the tourism product.

    All these issues should be analyzed to assess the extent of changes in the cruise industry

    and renewed challenges to the host territories.

    The cruise industry, controlled by a few powerful owners, has entered a new phase of

    economic realities that imply a spatial restructuring and a new spatial planning of the

    cruise. Regional approaches can researchers to highlight the location dynamics of this

    industry, the deployment of the cruise circuits, that characterize the different seasons,

    worldwide.

    More generally, cruise tourism is a field of study, with valuable lessons, for

    understanding of the development of tourism and the spatial logic underlies the

    development tourism strategies generally.

    The thematic priority:

    1 / The cruise industry worldwide and regional approaches (Mediterranean cruise,

    Caribbean cruise, Pacific cruise, cruise in southern waters).

    2 / Strategic nodes: ports and associated facilities.

    3 / Life on board

    4 / Economic issues in the cruise industry

    5 / The selling of the ship board experience as a "destination".

    6 /Conceptions of the cruise world throughout the world.

    The journal will accept original contributions in English, French and Spanish.
