Demand for cruise holidays 'remains high'

Date Posted: 12 Nov 2008

Despite the economic doom and gloom, Britons are as keen as ever to take holidays at sea, it has been claimed.

Leading cruise line Costa Cruises has reported strong bookings for 2009 sailings and says it is currently 12 per cent ahead of last year's figures.

Speaking at the World Travel Market, the cruise line's UK managing director Marco Rosa, said Mediterranean cruises and voyages around the Dubai area were looking particularly strong.

"People in this country will still travel and will not give up their holiday. A cruise will still be the best value for money, particularly for families," he commented.

Departures from Mauritius and the Far East are also looking particularly strong, TravelMole reports.

The news provider suggests that Costa's confidence has also been buoyed by the fact that it plans to introduce two new vessels next year – the Costa Pacifica and Costa Luminosa.

One of Europe's leading cruise lines, Costa currently operates sailings across a number of exotic destinations including the eastern Caribbean, South America and the Canary Islands.

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest.

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
