Costa Cruises reports growth

Date Posted: 02 Jun 2009
Category:
Even though the economic downturn has reduced the number of people planning to take a summer holiday this year, Costa Cruises has reported that it is going from strength to strength.

The company has confirmed its position as Europe's number one cruise line, stating that it has seen nothing but growth since the onset of the recession.

It claimed that its passenger volumes rose by ten per cent in 2008 to an estimated 4.7 million and that its ships accounted for 30 per cent of total passengers taking a Mediterranean cruise last year, the Chatham Daily News reports.

Meanwhile, holidaymakers looking to take a break on a luxury cruise this year were recently advised that the industry has become more innovative.

The Luxury Institute explained to eTravel Blackboard that the sector has been reinvented in order to meet the changing needs of passengers, while simultaneously adjusting to the fluctuating economic climate.

"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...”
