Cruise industry 'optimistic' about 2010

Article content

6 January 2010

The cruise industry is optimistic that 2010 will build on the resilience that was seen in the sector last year.

This is according to general manager of Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) UK, Stephen Park, who told TravelMole that the sector has a "sense of optimism" about the months ahead.

He noted that the recent introduction of Oasis of the Seas will be followed by 12 ships launching this year, including NCL's freestyle cruising vessel, the Norwegian Epic.

It will offer a "massive" range of entertainment from acts such as Blue Man Group, Mr Park observed, adding that attractions will appeal to both young and old alike.

"Cruise looks set to enjoy a high profile that will help attract newcomers and spark the imagination of dedicated cruisers alike," he was quoted as saying.

Last month, Bruce Parkinson said in an article for TakeOffeh.com that 2009 was a great year for the cruise industry, adding that the Oasis of the Seas launch "captured the imagination of the public".
