Cruise lovers 'getting more adventurous'

Date Posted: 04 Mar 2010

A new ranking of the world's greatest cruise destinations has placed the North American state of Alaska in the top spot followed by Charles Darwin's favourite place the Galapagos Islands.

Produced by The Cruise Show, the league table has the Arctic in third place, followed by the Antarctic Peninsula, the Black Sea, St Petersburg, Venice, the Mediterranean, the Corinth Canal and the Middle East.

Speaking on behalf of the organisation, cruise expert Jane Archer explained that the list highlights changing trends in the cruise sector.

"The fact that these destinations have become so popular is as much of an indication of how cruising has grown in numbers," she said.

"People are getting more adventurous but also you get more people who have cruised and are looking for somewhere away from the traditional places."

She went on to add that holidaymakers want "to find something other than the Caribbean and the Mediterranean".

Eight out of ten cruise lovers prefer ships carrying at least 1,000 passengers, according to a recent report from Carnival Cruises UK.
