Cruise dates for your diary

//Cruise dates for your diary

Couple of dates to make a note of . . . National Cruise Week will be from September 5 to 23 this year, and will be themed on Greatest Journeys. Which no doubt means that instead of pushing three-night mini-breaks from Southampton to Zeebrugge, it will be promoting destinations and experiences around the world.
Many of the cruise lines who are members of the Passenger Shipping Association and the travel agent members of the Association of Cruise Experts will be putting together special offers which will be worth looking out for.
PSA director William Gibbons says: “This is now the fifth National Cruise Week and it has gained a momentum all of its own. We cannot shy away from the fact that the industry has faced a challenging start to the year; however cruising is still continuing to grow in popularity.
“A cruise holiday offers exceptional value with a huge range of accommodation and destinations from the top-end exclusive, intimate cruise to the family fun holiday, all including meals and entertainment.
“It is key to the continuing growth of the market that we focus on attracting new people to the cruise concept and National Cruise Week is promoting the amazing and diverse range of experiences and incredible value that cruising offers.”
The popular Cruise Show, held in London in March each year, hits the road again in the autumn. It will be at Glasgow’s SECC on October 6-7, and the NEC, Birmingham, two weeks later, October 20-21.
