Cruise ships 'faring well'

Article content

9 December 2009

British people are increasingly interested in taking a holiday by cruise ship, one expert has suggested.

UK chairman of MSC Cruises, Peter Pate, said the market in the country has performed particularly well and confirmed his company topped one million passengers for 2009.

Mr Pate added that with the sector continuing to expand, many operators are looking for new ways to draw in the crowds.

"There's a limit to how much people want girls in sequins doing the can-can and there's no doubt that every cruise line is upping the game on their entertainment," he explained.

According to the specialist, there will also be an increase in the number of named celebrities performing for people that explore an ocean getaway.

Cruise Critic UK announced earlier this year that this form of vacation will boom in 2010, especially with the arrival of cutting-edge vessels like Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas.
