Cruises 'on the increase'

Date Posted: 21 Jan 2009
The number of people taking cruises worldwide is set to reach 13.5 million this year.

According to the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), this number will represent a 2.3 per cent increase on last year's figures.

The number of people taking holidays at sea has increased by almost 80 per cent over the last eight years and 14 new ships are set to launch this year, TravelMole reports.

Speaking recently, CLIA president Terry Dale said: "The remarkable diversity and variety of cruises give consumers a unique opportunity to find a vacation that fits their budget even during these economic downturns."

In related news, the Passenger Shipping Association said that cruises offer far better value for money than land-based holidays, with holidaymakers protected from unfavourable currency fluctuations.
