"Glitzy" Mediterranean cruises tipped for 2008

Date Posted: 21 Jan 2008
Category:
Eager holidaymakers are showing a preference for Mediterranean cruises in 2008, it has been reported.

According to the Los Angeles Times, information from the Cruise Lines International Association suggests that half of all cruise holiday passengers now book seven months in advance and this year the "glitzy" Mediterranean looks popular.

However, while the figures reveal that Mediterranean cruises are the fourth most booked destination for 2008, Caribbean cruises are still the number one favourite.

"At least one in ten phone calls is about South America," Donna Ratte, owner of Cruise Holidays, commented.

"The biggest change we're seeing in 2008 is, for the first time, there are fewer cabins in the Caribbean," Mike Driscoll, editor of Cruise Week, added, noting that Europe is becoming a popular cruise holiday destination.

The Association of British Travel Agents reported last month that cruise "remains a success story within the travel industry".

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
