Press Herald Cites UMaine Study in Cruise Ship Article

The Portland Press Herald cited a 2008 study by two University of Maine economists in the article “Carnival ship plans 8 visits to Portland this year.” The study, which was funded by Portland, looked at cruise ship passengers’ economic effects on the city. The study found the average passenger spends $80 to $110 a day in the Portland area, and the cruise ship industry generates between $5.8 million and $8 million in local sales.
