Round the world cruises remaining popular through the recession

Date Posted: 24 Jun 2009
Although the recession is supposedly tightening the purse strings of many individuals, it has failed to have a negative impact on the number of holidaymakers enjoying round the word cruises.

The Daily Mail has reported that more cruise liners are currently taking passengers on the trips which cost thousands of pounds and could last for three to four months.

It is argued that many individuals are seeing these trips as a way of enjoying a period of unbroken luxury and a break from the comings and goings of the real world.

Pieter Van Der Schee of Princess Cruises has advised that opting for a smaller vessel with fewer facilities may offer passengers the greatest break as they provide better socialising opportunities.

According to the publication, he said: "On a bigger ship you tend to get more passengers doing segments. It disrupts the social aspect of a world cruise.

"For many people the more gentle, slow-moving ambience of a world cruise is very important. You can really get to know other people well. The people become more important than the facilities."

Princess Cruises also offer Alaskan cruises and trips to locations including Australia, Canada and the Mexican Riviera.
