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.
