In response to skyrocketing airfare and hotel rates, the International Cruise Summit (ICS) 2023 in Madrid unveiled that cruises are a more competitive and viable travel option for travellers seeking affordability without compromising luxury. 

The summit, attended by industry moguls and over 25 global cruise lines, emphasised the cruise sector’s resilience and adaptability. 

In a press statement, the organisers say that a key takeaway from this year’s ICS was the industry’s commitment to sustainability, a cornerstone in its strategy to redefine sea travel. 

The organisers say that ICS 2023 Madrid placed as Europe’s leading cruise conference to examine fundamental industry questions and recognise the key areas on which to focus during the upcoming year. 

With an assembly of top cruise line executives and delegates from all sectors of the cruise industry, the event spotlighted new ideas and strategies for the future.

According to the statement the discussions at the summit covered a spectrum of pertinent issues, from new European immigration regulations, mental health considerations for crew and passengers, to inclusivity for the LGTBI+ community. Miguel Ángel Sanz Castedo of Turespaña and Álvaro Rodríguez Dapena, President of Ports of Spain, inaugurated the event.

Environmental sustainability remained a focal point, with initiatives like dock electrification and comprehensive training programs to ensure a discrimination-free environment for the LGTBI+ community being highlighted. 

The summit underscored the industry’s collective environmental health and mental well-being of its stakeholders, says the press statement.

It adds that industry stakeholders also shed light on the luxury cruise segment, highlighting the indispensable role of travel agents in curating experiences for discerning clients.
