AG James Opens Up NYC Tourism Market To Competition

Posted to Applied Web NY on Thu, 01/30/2020 - 17:46

NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today announced an agreement to increase competition in New York City’s tourism market. The agreement — required by a September 2019 settlement between the Office of the New York Attorney General and Hornblower Group, Inc. — will ensure Hornblower divests certain assets to Cornucopia Cruise Line, Inc. in an effort to allow Cornucopia to become a new competitor in the New York City dining cruise market. Without this divestiture, Hornblower’s acquisition of Entertainment Cruises, Inc. would likely have led to higher prices for tourists looking to purchase tickets for a dining cruise in New York City.
