Bahamas' tourism industry is undergoing several serious changes. Although the numbers of international tourists are increasing, the level of real tourism expenditures is declining. The highly competitive U.S. travel market and Canadian and European travelers are declining in importance and cruise ship visitors are increasing. These changes underlie a minimal increase in total real tourism revenue and a fall in real expenditures per visitor.
