More Europeans choose cruise holidays

Date Posted: 01 May 2008

New research has revealed that more and more Europeans are choosing to go on cruise holidays.

According to TravelMole, 17 per cent more Europeans opted for cruise holidays in 2007, compared to in the previous year, according to statistics from the European Cruise Council (ECC).

For Europeans, Mediterranean cruises are the most favoured type of cruises, preferred by 60 per cent of travellers.

Caribbean cruises and northern European cruise holidays were also popular choices for European holidaymakers.

"The popularity of cruising for European holidaymakers is growing faster than anyone in the industry envisaged. The ECC had predicted that we'd hit four million cruise passengers from Europe by 2010," commented David Dingle, ECC Chairman.

He noted that this target has been achieved two years ahead of schedule.

Norwegian Cruise Lines recently reported that travellers who want to enjoy a European holiday can do so without paying the price of losing out on their pounds to the strong euro if they travel on an NCL cruise holiday as the onboard currency is in US dollars.
