Great success for cruise lines

Article content

12 October 2009

Cruise lines represent one of the British travel industry's biggest successes of recent years.

That is the opinion of Sean Tipton, spokesman for ABTA - The Travel Association, who noted that the economic downturn has not affected the sector.

Indeed, he observed an increase in the number of Britons choosing to take cruises and predicted the growth will be maintained.

Mr Tipton stated that the trend makes cruising "one of the great success stories", adding: "As we are looking to slowly get out of the recession, we're confident that cruise numbers will continue to grow."

It comes after the Passenger Shipping Association released its latest figures at the Travel Convention in Barcelona last week.

According to the statistics, the number of British holidaymakers choosing cruises has increased by five per cent this year compared to 2008, despite the wider holiday market being said to be facing one of the most challenging years on record.
