Smaller cruise ships 'offer intimacy'

Article content

22 January 2010

People hoping to make some new friends on a cruise ship holiday should look at options to travel on a smaller vessel, according to one expert.

Travel writer for the Daily Mail, Sarah Gordon, set sail aboard the Royal Clipper to see the delights of the West Indies, but was most impressed with the friendly atmosphere between guests and other travellers, as well as the crew.

"I met some fascinating and like-minded people and the talent shows and discos kept everyone dancing and chatting late into the night," Ms Gordon said.

She added that dinner time is an equally amicable affair, with the captain and other crew members joining travellers to tell tales from their lives at sea.

Peter Pate, UK chairman of MSC Cruises, recently said that more people in Britain are looking at taking a cruise for their vacations, with the market in the country performing particularly well over the last year.
