New ships to encourage UK cruise industry growth

Date Posted: 11 Sep 2009
Category:
The launch of new ships such as Royal Caribbean Cruises' new vessel Oasis of the Seas will help the UK cruise industry grow, according to the Passenger Shipping Association (PSA).

Penny Guy, a spokesperson for the PSA, said that cruise holidays are becoming increasingly popular among Brits because they are offering the best value for money in the current economic climate.

"We are anticipating continued growth in the UK cruise market next year with the introduction of dedicated ships for the market, together with the general increase in interest in cruising as a holiday," she said.

She added: "Although it isn't completely recession proof, we feel it has been more resilient than a lot of the other parts of the holiday industry."

Oasis of the Seas is due to launch in December 2009 and will bring to the market a variety of industry firsts, including the most unique and varied collection of onboard entertainment.

The ship will also boast a 600 capacity AquaTheater, which will have the largest and deepest pool at sea.

What our customers say

"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...”
