Cruise holidaymakers focused on 'culture and scenery'

Date Posted: 31 Jul 2009
Areas providing holidaymakers with culture and strong views are proving the most popular with those heading on cruise breaks, it has been stated.

Penny Guy, a spokesperson for the Passenger Shipping Association, has revealed that typically sought-after destinations including the Caribbean continue to be in style, alongside newer locations such as Baltic and Fjords cruises.

Miss Guy said: "We have the traditional popular spots of the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. Northern Europe and the Baltic are proving particularly popular as well.

"There's a lot culture in those areas and beautiful scenic views so they're drawing customers."

The spokesperson added that among the benefits for holidaymakers of taking a cruise holiday is that they have little to sort out, as accommodation, food and entertainment is all provided, alongside the opportunity to visit a range of destinations.

"Cruising is certainly holding its own in this difficult economic climate because of that value proposition that it offers," she concluded.

A report earlier this year from the Passenger Shipping Association revealed that the Mediterranean is the favourite cruise destination for British holidaymakers.
