Far East increasing in popularity with cruise lovers

Date Posted: 24 Jul 2009
With holidaymakers no longer content to settle for a cruise holiday around the Mediterranean or the Caribbean, a number of new avenues are now opening, one of which is the Far East, it has been stated.

Costa Cruises is one operator to have expanded its destination range to passengers, with two ships now based in China, the Daily Mail reports.

Marco Rosa, UK managing director of the firm, has revealed that this is not the only destination being demanded by holidaymakers in the Far East, with the likes of South Korea and Vietnam also proving popular.

According to the publication, he said: "With the cruise industry continuing to develop amid the economic downturn, we have noticed a marked increase in demand for itineraries throughout the Far East.

"This market will only continue to grow. In 2013, Hong Kong's cruise terminal will be completed, Shanghai will open its second terminal in 2010, while Singapore is converting its harbour front exhibition hall into an operational terminal."

Among the vessels that an individual may get the chance to sail on with Costa Cruises are the Costa Fortuna and the Costa Atlantica.
