Cruise operators eye Asian growth

Cruise operators are looking to Asia's growing middle class to boost their business over the next decade.

They say business is growing by about 14% annually in the region, and they are hoping to more than double the number of passengers by 2020.

Many governments in the region are also building new infrastructure to accommodate more ships.

Tony Kaufman, senior vice president of Princess Cruises told the BBC there was a lot of potential in Asia, given "the population and growing middle class".
