Demand for cruise holidays 'remains high'

Date Posted: 12 Nov 2008

Despite the economic doom and gloom, Britons are as keen as ever to take holidays at sea, it has been claimed.

Leading cruise line Costa Cruises has reported strong bookings for 2009 sailings and says it is currently 12 per cent ahead of last year's figures.

Speaking at the World Travel Market, the cruise line's UK managing director Marco Rosa, said Mediterranean cruises and voyages around the Dubai area were looking particularly strong.

"People in this country will still travel and will not give up their holiday. A cruise will still be the best value for money, particularly for families," he commented.

Departures from Mauritius and the Far East are also looking particularly strong, TravelMole reports.

The news provider suggests that Costa's confidence has also been buoyed by the fact that it plans to introduce two new vessels next year – the Costa Pacifica and Costa Luminosa.

One of Europe's leading cruise lines, Costa currently operates sailings across a number of exotic destinations including the eastern Caribbean, South America and the Canary Islands.
