Cruise holidays to hit 1.65m in 2010

Date Posted: 03 Dec 2009
The Passenger Shipping Association (PSA) has predicted that the UK cruising industry will break records in 2010 as hundreds of thousands of cruise lovers take a holiday on sea.

According to the organisation, which represents 38 UK operators, 1.65 million British passengers will take a cruise next year as the sector now offers value and variety.

The projection represents an increase of 6.5 per cent over this year's figures and comes amid the inauguration of the world's largest cruise ship Oasis of the Seas.

"You can now choose to join a cruise with just 49 fellow passengers around the Scottish Highlands on the delightful Hebridean Princess, or 6,000 others in the Caribbean on the awesome Oasis of the Seas," commented PSA director Bill Gibbons.

"Meals, accommodation and entertainment are included in the price which can be neatly hedged by UK consumers paying in sterling."

It was recently revealed at the World Travel Market that naked cruising could become widespread as an increasing number of niche services are offered.
