Carnival Cruise Line dominates in the short cruise market with an estimated passenger capacity of more than 2 million (double occupancy); Royal Caribbean International at 1.1 million, Bahamas Paradise at 522,000 and Norwegian Cruise Line just north of 400,000. All four have increased their short cruise capacity from last year.
