The cruise industry hopes to set sail later this summer. But with images of coronavirus-ravaged ships still fresh in many minds, there could be years of choppy water ahead.
The global cruise industry expected to carry 32 million passengers and take in $71 billion in revenue this year.
That will fall by at least 50% this year, says Euromonitor International, a consulting firm.
Euromonitor expects it to take more than three years for the industry to recover.
Cruise lines stopped sailing in mid-March after several high-profile outbreaks at sea.
They are still developing plans to sail safely again.
