PSA: Cruise offer better value than land-based holidays

Date Posted: 30 Jan 2009
All-inclusive cruises offer better value for money than traditional land-based package holidays, it has been suggested.

Penny Guy, a spokesperson for the Passenger Shipping Association (PSA), said there are some fantastic deals to be had on cruises and with 14 new ships set to launch this year, the offers look set to continue.

The UK cruise market experienced double-digit growth for the second successive year in 2008 and, according to the PSA, two million Britons will be taking cruises every year by 2012.

"I think we can see at the moment that there are extremely good value deals available in the cruise market. There's a lot of advertising going on at the moment and the value for money is exceptional in comparison with many other types of land-based holidays," Ms Guy commented.

Speaking last week, Iam Rumgay, UK communications manager for Cruise Critic, said 2009 will be the year of last-minute cruise deals and suggested that a holiday at sea is the ideal way to beat the currency exchange blues.
