Cruisers 'prefer Caribbean'

Date Posted: 17 Jun 2008

Caribbean cruises remain a firm favourite among travellers, new research shows.

According to a survey by Cruise Lines International Association (Clia), passengers are increasingly opting to take their children with them on family cruises to the Caribbean, the Associated Press reports.

The Clia study also showed that interest in cruising remains strong among the uninitiated, with 55 per cent of holiday-takers intending to sample a cruise for the first time in the coming three years.

"With the Caribbean, one of the biggest advantages is there's simply more choice and it's a much more flexible option. During times of the year when there's more variety, pricing will be more competitive as well," Carolyn Spencer Brown, editor-in-chief of CruiseCritic.com stated.

Research also showed that cruisers often travel in pairs although there has been a recent surge in family cruises.

Modern cruises may be attracted families thanks to the amenities onboard which include dance floors, rock climbing and miniature golf.
