The top executive of the South Carolina State Ports Authority is issuing an update on the state's growing cruise industry.
Jim Newsome presents his report on Thursday during a meeting with the public at the authority's passenger terminal in Charleston.
This has been the first year-round cruising season from Charleston.
Last winter, the authority unveiled plans to create a new cruise terminal and open another half-mile of Charleston's historic waterfront to the public.
A study commissioned by the authority and released earlier this year estimated cruises meant $37 million to the South Carolina economy this year.
