2010 'a great year for cruise ships'

Article content

1 February 2010

Travellers are becoming increasingly interested in cruise ship holidays and this year could prove to be a popular one for the market, it has been claimed.

Writing for comparecarhire.co.uk, Andy Hemmington noted that there are several locations currently viewed as great places to visit while aboard a vessel.

According to Mr Hemmington, an Arctic vacation is a "once-in-a-lifetime" opportunity and individuals can take advantage of the Svalbard archipelago as a possible destination in the Nordic region.

Those hoping for something a little sunnier may wish to consider a stop off in Asia, he remarked, adding: "Now you can travel between Siem Reap (Temples of Angkor) and Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) with easy side journeys on the water to Phnom Penh, Halong Bay [and] Hanoi."

Other hotly-tipped countries included Cuba and Libya, while the Baltic region was highlighted as a more popular tourist location than even the Caribbean.

Cruise liner enthusiasts were recently advised by Daily Mail journalist Mark Palmer that all-inclusive holidays aboard a ship are a good option, pointing out the excellent customer service from staff members on journeys of this kind.
