Cruise lovers name Venice their best port

Date Posted: 28 Sep 2009
Category:
A study conducted by YouGov for National Cruise Week, the world's largest cruise campaign, recently found that the romantic Italian resort of Venice is the favourite port of call for cruise lovers.

Venice beat thousands of competing ports to win the poll with a five per cent vote from cruise lovers followed by the Spanish port of Barcelona, which scored four per cent.

Mediterranean ports also emerged as the favourite destinations for many Brits after collectively being backed by 15 per cent of voters, with Caribbean destinations also proving popular among cruise lovers.

The port of Road Town on Tortola in the British Virgin Islands is highly rated among British cruise takers and so are the ports St John's in Antigua and Bridgetown, Barbados.

British cruise lovers' favourite ports in North America are Miami, which is the US' largest cruise port, and Vancouver in Canada, the study showed.

National Cruise Week was held between September 20th and 27th 2009 to showcase and promote the variety available in the cruising industry.

"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.

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...”
