Cruise holidays proving 'cost-effective' for holidaymakers

Date Posted: 08 Jun 2009

Holidaymakers looking for breaks offering the biggest bargains are turning their attention to cruises, it has been suggested.

According to the Times, Philip Price of P&O Cruises, has insisted that poor exchange rate of the euro is one of the reasons behind this belief.

Meanwhile, travellers also get to avoid the additional problems of crowded departure lounges and possible flight delays by opting to take a cruise rather than flying to a foreign destination.

"With the poor exchange rate for the euro, cruise holidays paid for in sterling are now one of the most cost-effective ways to travel," the newspaper revealed that Mr Price said.

"Real savings can be made as all extras in hotels and resorts on the Continent are included.' And, of course, meals are too."

Meanwhile, holidaymakers can also take advantage of an increasing number of ships in which to set sail on including Aurora, Oceana and Ventura from P&O Cruises.

P&O Cruises recently signed a deal with television chef Marco Pierre White to allow the cook to give private lessons to passengers on board of the company's ships.
