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.
