I would think ALL cruisers are important to a cruiseline 1st timers, repeaters and all the cruisers in between. There are repeaters that hardly do any spending onboard but there are repeaters that do lots of spending same goes for 1st timers they will spend money but then there are those that will not they are maybe over their budget just by buying the cabin and airfare if needed.

On big plus for the cruiselines with their repeaters is word of mouth. One of the best advertising there is. Those that are loyal repeaters tend to discuss and recommend their cruise line to family, friends, neighbors and coworkers.

I know repeat cruisers that spend and some that don't spend at all and I also know cruisers that cruise not so often but spend like money is going out of style and others that even smuggle their own booze so they don't have to buy any onboard and end up with a bill of $100. at the end of the week.

Should cruiselines start interviewing cruisers on their spending habits before the cruiseline accepts their booking
