Holidays essential says cruise expert

Article content

8 January 2010

Consumers still see holidays as being essential rather than a luxury in spite of the current economic climate.

This is according to director of Thomson Cruises, David Selby, who told TravelMole that the cruise market will still be popular in 2010.

He noted that there is a large untapped market for potential cruise customers, stating: "For every holidaymaker that has seen the light, there is another who has never considered a cruise."

Mr Selby explained that research by his firm shows people still want to go on a cruise holiday, but he added that there is "no doubt they are savvy and want to ensure they get value for money".

The service, entertainment and food available on cruise ships means potential customers who have not travelled by sea before will soon see it is the "obvious option", he added.

General manager of Norwegian Cruise Line UK, Stephen Park, recently explained to TravelMole that the cruise industry is optimistic about what is to come in 2010.ADNFCR-2704-ID-19547037-ADNFCR
