The Popularity of Luxury Cruise Holidays is growing
In the past five years Cruise ships are growing rapidly and vessels carrying 2,000 passengers or more are now commonplace. The really big growth, however, is in small-ship ultra-luxury cruising. The effect of this has been unprecedented expansion at the top end of the small-ship sector, high-end luxury cruise lines continue to wow travelers with spacious accommodations, exemplary service, gourmet cuisine and access to unique experiences — both on the ship and on land.
After a surge in sails around the Mediterranean, cruise lines are moving back to the Caribbean but now there are new destinations like Trans Pacific, U.S. Rivers, South America, Antarctic, Asia, Africa and Exotic Rivers. Especially Asia voyages are getting more attention everyday..Monasteries, rain-forests, royal residences, and tuk-tuks are among new shore-side outings showcasing both off-the-beaten-path port calls and major urban centers in Malaysia, Brunei, Myanmar, Indonesia, Japan, and India. The U.S. has long led the way in number of passengers aboard cruise ships, and that will continue to be the case. But we should expect to see more Brazilian, British and German passengers as the industry starts to lure other nationalities and also more younger people. Not only are the first-time cruisers getting younger, but we will see more and more multi-generational families sailing together to celebrate a significant milestone.”Extreme Shore Excursion” For more examples visit our Boat section..
