Luxury cruises offer value for money, operator states

Holidaymakers opting for luxury cruises can still get value for money without compromising the level of lavishness, according to an industry insider.

An increasing number of people are realising the attributes of taking a cruise holiday and among them are those seeking a top end product despite the recession, according to the Yachts of Seabourn.

Andrew Magowan, the company's director for Europe, Middle East and Africa, explained that luxury cruise companies have made a few changes because of the economic upheavals.

"Post last September, there was this push back against conspicuous luxury consumption, less so here. So we reigned back on the caviar," he said.

"On the ultra luxury end, we have fixed costs and we don't want to cut the product, but we do want to bring new people to the crowd so it is about articulating that value for money."

His comments come in the awake of projections from the Passenger Shipping Association that 1.65 million Brits will go on a cruise in 2010.

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! "
