Expert offers money-saving tips for cruise holidays

Date Posted: 22 Jan 2009
Cruise customers on a lower budget amid the economic climate this year can still make the most of their holiday in 2009, an expert has suggested.

People travelling on shorter, cheap cruise trips that will stop in a number of locations could cut back on their cabin options, noted Ian Rumgay, UK communications director for cruise industry community website Cruise Critic.

"You are probably going to be stopping at a different port everyday and all you are going to do is go to that cabin and put your head down at night," he said.

Customers might want to watch what they spend at the bar, as a high bill can creep up on them, Mr Rumgay continued.

But many cruise travellers might not have to change their spending habits in 2009, despite the economic crisis, because there is likely to be some "really amazing bargains" on the market this year, he said.

Passenger Shipping Association figures released last summer showed that the cruise market was continuing to grow - and the group forecast two million customers by 2012.
