"Breakthrough" in younger cruising numbers for P&O

Date Posted: 17 Apr 2008
Category:
One cruise line has made what it describes as a "breakthrough" in terms of attracting younger passengers to cruising, it has been reported.

According to TravelMole, P&O Cruises has attracted a younger clientele to new ship Ventura for cruise holidays in its first season.

The average passenger age on the ship for its first season is 44, Managing Director Nigel Esdale told TravelMole yesterday, which is ten years younger than in general for the UK cruise market and three years older than the casual cruise brand Ocean Village.


The drop in average age was said in part to be due to the increase in popularity of family cruises.

Ventura recently announced that children's Mr Men favourite Noddy would be appearing on some cruises while a real-life circus complete with trapeze artists will be based onboard the superliner.

Royal Caribbean Cruises, meanwhile, has announced that it wants to find a godmother that connects with young people for its new ship Independence of the Seas.

What our customers say

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
