Cruise holidays proving 'cost-effective' for holidaymakers

Date Posted: 08 Jun 2009

Holidaymakers looking for breaks offering the biggest bargains are turning their attention to cruises, it has been suggested.

According to the Times, Philip Price of P&O Cruises, has insisted that poor exchange rate of the euro is one of the reasons behind this belief.

Meanwhile, travellers also get to avoid the additional problems of crowded departure lounges and possible flight delays by opting to take a cruise rather than flying to a foreign destination.

"With the poor exchange rate for the euro, cruise holidays paid for in sterling are now one of the most cost-effective ways to travel," the newspaper revealed that Mr Price said.

"Real savings can be made as all extras in hotels and resorts on the Continent are included.' And, of course, meals are too."

Meanwhile, holidaymakers can also take advantage of an increasing number of ships in which to set sail on including Aurora, Oceana and Ventura from P&O Cruises.

P&O Cruises recently signed a deal with television chef Marco Pierre White to allow the cook to give private lessons to passengers on board of the company's ships.

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...”
