Cruise lovers name Venice their best port

Date Posted: 28 Sep 2009
Category:
A study conducted by YouGov for National Cruise Week, the world's largest cruise campaign, recently found that the romantic Italian resort of Venice is the favourite port of call for cruise lovers.

Venice beat thousands of competing ports to win the poll with a five per cent vote from cruise lovers followed by the Spanish port of Barcelona, which scored four per cent.

Mediterranean ports also emerged as the favourite destinations for many Brits after collectively being backed by 15 per cent of voters, with Caribbean destinations also proving popular among cruise lovers.

The port of Road Town on Tortola in the British Virgin Islands is highly rated among British cruise takers and so are the ports St John's in Antigua and Bridgetown, Barbados.

British cruise lovers' favourite ports in North America are Miami, which is the US' largest cruise port, and Vancouver in Canada, the study showed.

National Cruise Week was held between September 20th and 27th 2009 to showcase and promote the variety available in the cruising industry.

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! "
