'Beat the currency blues' with a cruise

Date Posted: 27 Jan 2009
British holidaymakers can beat currency fluctuations by opting for a cruise this year, it has been claimed.

Speaking recently, Ian Rumgay, UK communications manager for Cruise Critic, said that passengers, particularly those travelling on UK ships will find that they are largely unaffected by the strong euro.

"Look for last minute deals and 2009 is the year of the deal on cruises. There are some really amazing bargains. Think about your cabin. If you are on a relatively short cruise of seven days, do you really need a cabin with a balcony and light?" he commented.

Passengers can save even more money by bringing their own drinks to have in their cabins, Mr Rumgay added.

Figures published by the Passenger Shipping Association last year predicted that over two million Brits will be enjoying cruise holidays every year by 2012.

Furthermore, the UK cruise market enjoyed double-digit growth for the second successive year in 2008.
