Cruise ships 'had an unforgettable 2009'

Article content

29 December 2009

This year has been a great one for the cruise ship sector, it has been suggested.

Writing for TakeOffEh, Bruce Parkinson noted that while 2009 did have its downsides for the industry, a number of exciting developments occurred.

According to the travel journalist, one of the main benefits was the arrival Oasis of the Seas - Royal Caribbean's flagship offering.

"Like a floating Vegas, Oasis of the Seas captured the imagination of the public - including a good chunk of the many people who have never walked a gangplank," he added.

Looking ahead to 2010, Mr Parkinson stated, there will be a number of new cruise liners being released, as well as the refurbishment of many existing vessels.

Onboard facilities are likely to experience a makeover also, he explained, with entertainment and culinary choices due for modernisation.

UK chairman of MSC Cruises, Peter Pate, shared similar sentiments earlier this month, commenting that 2009 has been an excellent year for the industry, with companies looking to improve passenger facilities in the future.
