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.

"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! "
