Paper Title
Model of Mediterranean Cruising from 2012 to 2022

This paper explores cruise tourism in the Mediterranean, with a special emphasis on ports for the reception of ships on cruise voyages. The paper analyzes data on the availability of ships and passengers in the busiest ports for the reception of ships on cruise journeys in the Mediterranean. Tendencies in the passenger traffic from 2012 to 2017 were investigated for the five most important cruise ports in the Mediterranean: Barcelona, Civitavecchia, the Balearic Islands, Venice, and Marseille. Based on the mental and verbal findings of the aforementioned, the selected model variables are quantified on the index scale from zero to 100, the model of Mediterranean cruising. In conclusion of the paper, a model based on matrix account is formed, focusing on the direct growth rates for the period up to 2022. At the same time, the presentation of direct and indirect rates can be monitored, both of the changes in the intensity of the variables, and of their structural relationships.
