  • Growth Analysis
scope of work
Scope of Work
  • Objective: Assess the potential deployment opportunities at the Port of Jacksonville
  • Key factors affecting deployment opportunities
    • Relocation and construction of new terminal
    • Expansion of the North American fleet and its destination deployment
    • Source market for cruise passengers
    • Cruise executives’ perceptions of ports
    • Competition among similarly sized ports
    • Growth and deployment strategies of individual cruise lines
  • Port is currently a single ship port offering year-round 4- and 5-day cruises to the Bahamas on the Fascination.
  • Approximately 80% of passengers arrive by ground transportation and 20% by air.
    • More than 50% of all passengers and 75% of drive-to passengers reside in 5 states (FL, GA, NC, AL, SC)
  • Current cruise potential is limited due to size of terminal facilities and air draft constraint.
  • Relocation and expansion of the cruise facilities at Mayport will allow the port to support larger cruise ships.
  • Fascination and Celebration, before it, have been sailing at over 100% capacity.

overview of n a cruise industry
Overview of N.A. Cruise Industry
  • Industry is entering a reduced growth phase brought about by the global economic recession.
    • Newbuilds will remain reasonably strong through 2010 and then decelerate through 2013 following a pattern similar to that after 9/11.
      • Declining yields will drive down construction with a lag.
      • Some planned and committed projects have been cancelled
      • Others are being re-negotiated.
    • European deployments are being re-evaluated with several ships being redeployed to North America.

implications for jacksonville
Implications for Jacksonville
  • The North American fleet will continue to expand, albeit at a slower pace, providing more opportunities for smaller ports, like Jacksonville, to homeport ships displaced from larger ports.

  • 7-day cruises to the Western Caribbean are feasible with an initial call at Key West and two calls in the Western Caribbean.
summary of market analysis
Summary of Market Analysis
  • Increase in North American fleet will result in a trickle down of homeport deployment from the major to minor ports.
  • Caribbean deployment will continue to increase with the Eastern Caribbean increasing its market share.
  • Jacksonville has only a small penetration into its drive-to market for potential Caribbean cruisers and should be able to attract more passengers from this market.

  • RCCL/Celebrity have reduced their presence in both Charleston and Norfolk in 2010 and will add numerous ships through 2011.
    • RCCL will deploy the Allure of the Seas at Port Everglades in 2011 resulting in a chain of redeployments.

deployment potential
Deployment Potential
  • Expansion of cruise itineraries to the Eastern and Western Caribbean.
    • More than a doubling of passengers and cruise revenues
  • Expansion of the North American fleet with larger ships being deployed on Caribbean itineraries will continue.
  • Movement of ships from Tier 1 to Tier 2 to Tier 3 ports will be necessary.
  • Jacksonville is located so as to be able to source passengers throughout the southeast and to also access destinations throughout most of the Caribbean.
  • With the construction of a new terminal at Mayport, Jacksonville will be able to handle the largest cruise ships and have a competitive advantage over other Tier 3 ports.
  • As a result Jacksonville has the potential to more than double current passenger volumes and revenues over the next decade.
