UK cruise market 'to double in a decade'

Article content

8 March 2010

The cruise market in Britain will double in size over the next decade, it has been predicted, driven by shorter trips and an increased range of holidays.

According to Carnival UK's Cruise Report 2010, citing figures from Cruise.co.uk, over one in four people who opt for regular cruises as vacations would be happy to reduce their general expenditure in other areas to ensure that they are able to afford their main excursion, TTG Luxury reports.

And Micky Arison - chief executive of Carnival Corporation, parent company of Carnival UK - forecast that three million passengers each year will be registered on such ships, taking into consideration the 100 per cent growth to 1.55 million travellers seen in the last ten years.

This comes after Costa Cruises recently confirmed that it had joined Abta - The Travel Association in a bid to enhance the level of services it offers to customers.
