The Economics of Cruise Tourism in Key West: Behind the Cruise Industry's Propaganda Veil
Wednesday October 21, 2020

A new report, “The Economics of Cruise Tourism in Key West: Behind the Cruise Industry’s Propaganda Veil”, released today by the environmental advocacy group Stand.earth, finds that the cruise industry has misled Key West residents about the economic benefits that cruise tourism has delivered to the city.  

The report comes just weeks before a November 3 vote on three referendums that would limit the number of passengers disembarking from cruise ships to a total of 1,500 people per day, prohibit cruise ships with a capacity of 1,300 or more people from disembarking, and give priority to cruise lines with the best environmental and health records.
