Abstract

There has been significant growth in cruise ship tourism in recent decades, leading to benefits and problems for host ports, with most growth concentrated in small-medium cruise ports, and these have sought to develop policy and practice solutions which maximise net benefits from cruise tourism. The experience of the Atlantic Canadian ports of Halifax, Sydney and Saint John is illustrative in this context, for instance, via the application of institutional partnership, appropriate infrastructure provision and management practices, and a diversity of uses close to the cruise terminal area. Such elements have implications for cruise ship tourism in other contexts.
