Customers on UK cruises 'could avoid hassle'

Date Posted: 29 May 2009
Holidaymakers who choose to go on cruises from the UK are saving themselves a lot of hassle, it has been claimed.

According to the Passenger Shipping Association, there are more benefits to be had from embarking on a cruise from a UK port.

The association's director William Gibbons commented that not having to worry about trekking through an airport is always an advantage.

"You don't have to worry about luggage being overweight or whether you have too much," he explained.

Mr Gibbons is of the opinion that flying to get to a cruise should simply be avoided, adding that even ships that set off from the Mediterranean could be reached by driving to Southampton and sailing from there.

Meanwhile, the European Cruise Council claimed last week that more Britons are likely to opt to go on cruises this year.

Chairman of the council David Dingle said that the economic downturn is likely to have little effect on them.

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! "
