Cruise ships 'good for consumers in 2010'

Article content

30 December 2009

Cruise line operators are currently offering their best ever deals to entice potential holidaymakers over the new year, it has been suggested.

General manager of White Star Cruises Scott Anderson said the festive season is traditionally an important time for many organisations to draw in extra business, TravelMole reports.

"This year it's not just the mass market cruise lines who are launching savings and special offers, luxury cruise lines at the highest end of the industry are also coming out fighting," he added.

According to Mr Anderson, this is excellent for the consumer as it can drive prices down and could potentially tempt people to try this form of vacation for the first time.

In 2010, five-star and six-star cruise ship voyages are becoming more cost-effective for customers to take advantage of, he added.

Earlier this month, UK general manager for Norwegian Cruise Line Stephen Park said that cruise line firms are making more of an effort to attract families and young couples to take their first trip.
