Caribbean is 'top choice' for cruisers

Date Posted: 27 Jun 2008

The Caribbean is the favourite destination among those planning a cruise, a new report has revealed.

Research conducted by the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) found people are also more willing to take their children with them on such holidays, the Associated Press (AP) reports.

However, the study also showed the high cost of fuel is curtailing the time many cruises spend at sea.

Ports such as Aruba are seeing fewer ships because many cruise providers are unwilling to spend the additional fuel needed to reach them.

Carolyn Spencer Brown, the editor-in-chief of online resource CruiseCritic.com, told the AP: "You're seeing a lot less of the real exotic types of itineraries that require more sea time because it's so expensive."

Earlier this month, CLIA commented that taking a cruise holiday can help stretch finances further as there are many options available, which cater to every budget.

What our customers say


"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
