Abstract

By conceptualizing the cruise ship as the destination in itself, this contribution discusses the role of destination image in cruise passengers' decision-making processes and focuses on the role and contents of visual texts such as TV commercials in the promotion of cruise tourism. A content analysis is performed over TV commercials broadcast by different cruise lines to Italian travellers. Specific components of the image of ships as tourist destinations as promoted through TV advertising campaigns are identified.
