    Abstract

    Recent growth in the cruise tourism industry continues to exceed that in other tourism sectors. This has led to competition between cities and countries to exploit this sector, often to assist aims for broadly-based regeneration, with the resulting development of new cruise passenger terminals in many port cities. Such developments can bring problems as well as benefits, though spatial planning can maximise these and ameliorate or mitigate potential problems. This can be illustrated by the cases of cruise terminal developments in Amsterdam and Rotterdam in the Netherlands, which offer lessons for other contexts.
