Liners to launch 14 new ships

Date Posted: 08 Oct 2008
Holidaymakers are to get an expanded choice of cruises with the launch of 14 new ships, it has emerged.

Despite the retirement of the QE2 to Dubai and a reduction in the fleet size of Thomson Cruises, travellers will nevertheless have an expanded range of vessels on which they can enjoy a cruise holiday, TravelMole reports.

It notes the Passenger Shipping Association (PSA) forecasts a rise of between two and three per cent in consumers holidaying on cruise ships next year.

Bill Gibbons, director of the PSA, said: "We're still a relatively young and expanding industry with plenty of opportunity to grow as new ships come into service."

He added despite the economic downturn, the inclusive nature of cruise holidays makes them great value for money and easy to budget.

One of the new cruise liners set for sail in 2009 is the Oasis of the Seas from Royal Caribbean which boasts 2,700 staterooms and seven neighbourhoods over its 16 decks.
