Passengers 'will not let pirates put them off cruising'

Date Posted: 24 Dec 2008
Category:
British people are unlikely to allow recent incidents affecting cruise ships in the Gulf of Aden put them off cruising, according to one newspaper.

The Telegraph reported that many people would still set sail on their favourite ships, despite the rise of piracy in the area.

One of the publication's writers, who recently sailed on a Caribbean cruise, recently spoke to fellow passengers and discovered that cruise fans are a resilient bunch.

"I cruise three or four times a year and won't let these people dictate what I do," said one of the guests.

Demand for cruises could even increase over the coming year, according to a report by Cruise Market Watch.

The website predicts there will be an increase of seven per cent in the number of people taking cruises in 2009, compared to this year.
