Cruise holidays tipped for top in 2008

Date Posted: 22 Jan 2008
Cruise holidays are set to be a top trend in 2008, it has been reported.

According to Holiday Which?, holidaymakers who in the past did not realise the potential for activities a cruise holiday offers are increasingly realising that such holidays are not "restrictive".

The comment comes after the Passenger Shipping Association reported that the number of cruise holiday passengers rose from 522,000 Britons in 1997 to 1.2 million Britons in 2006.

"I think people are beginning to realise that they're not as restrictive as maybe they once would have thought. You can actually see quite a lot on a 14-day cruise," Claire Lilley, head of research at Holiday Which? said.

She added that the number of "massive" new cruise ships being launched in 2008 is "phenomenal".

Among the new ships to be launched will be Southampton-based ship Ventura, part of the P&O Cruises flotilla.

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! "
