Caribbean cruises to be more popular this winter?

Date Posted: 19 Nov 2009
Category:
More holidaymakers could be booking a Caribbean cruise with companies such as Royal Caribbean this winter after the Post Office recorded a 70 per cent increase in sales of East Caribbean dollars.

Alistair Daly, marketing director at On the Beach, said that the trend of holidaying in non-eurozone countries is likely to continue into the winter.

"Current bookings at On the Beach suggest that both the Caribbean Islands and [the] USA will prove particularly popular this winter," he commented.

Mr Daly went on to say that the Caribbean is a popular region for Brits thanks to its hot weather, stunning beaches and warm seas - a far cry from the dull, cold British winter.

On the Beach research published earlier this month revealed a 16 per cent increase in bookings to the Caribbean compared to this time last year, with the average stay increasing from seven nights to nine nights.

Separate findings from Hayes & Jarvis revealed that the Caribbean was one of the regions most affected by the pound's slump, although holidaymakers can now expect to find that sterling stretches further.

"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.

"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...”
