UK cruise ships 'offer convenience'

Article content

7 December 2009

Britons are increasingly looking to book cruise ships from the UK because they are convenient, it has been suggested.

Chairman of Gill's Cruise Centre, Alistair Gill, said that a rise in popularity that has been experienced in the industry is down to people feeling less stressed by British cruises, the Daily Mail reports.

Commenting on why UK cruise ships are successful, he remarked: "There is no waiting around at the airport at either end and passengers can take their time to get settled on board before the main itinerary begins."

Mr Gill went on to say that another added bonus is that tourists are able to carry as much baggage as they want because there are no restrictions.

According to the Daily Mail, "convenience cruising" - people sailing to and from the UK - has seen a 20 per cent jump in the last year.

Fiona Jeffery, chair of the World Travel Market, recently said that cruising is "vital" for the holiday sector and is beginning to appeal to a wider age group.
