There are, however, many more cruises offered by other lines, as shown in popular consumer guides, the most comprehensive of which is the Berlitz Guide to Ocean Cruising and Cruise Ships (Ward, 2004). Consequently, any analysis based solely upon figures released by CLIA has a geographical bias to it (Charlier, 1996, 2000). 18 This chapter attempts to rectify that bias by drawing upon a more comprehensive source of cruise shipping operations, namely a yearly publication of the Swedish consultancy ShipPax (Brogen, 2004).

For the Mediterranean there is a temporal bimodal submarket, with peaks in late spring and midfall, and a somewhat more limited offer in the summer months indicating a quite long cruise season (April to mid-November). In contrast, the winter months have a very limited, yet nonnegligible offer. For northern Europe (as for Alaska), the cruise season is rather short with an early start in the spring (again thanks to the Gulf Stream) and a peak in mid-summer. This midsummer peak in northern waters explains somewhat the bimodal pattern in the Mediterranean as ships move north with the finer weather.
