“There’s something for all the family,” and “You get treated like royalty, no matter what cabin you’re in” are just two of the reasons customers in this video give for choosing a cruise holiday.
Cruising holidays accounted for one in eight package holidays bought last year; one in five people who took a cruise were under 45 years old, while 36 per cent of the passengers who travelled were first time cruisers, dispelling the myth that cruises are exclusively for the older generation
Giulio Libuttii from MSC Cruises says, “You don’t need to spend a lot to go on a cruise; it’s affordable for any type of customer. It’s got something to offer for everyone. The modern cruise ship is a destination in itself – because you can spend a lot of time on board enjoying a real wealth of facilities, whilst travelling and seeing the world.”
Backing the trend, specialist travel agent Cruise1st has announced a return to selling on television. The company will be on Sky channel 643 every evening from 8.00 pm to 9.00 pm.
Manchester-based Cruise1st made the move after discovering two-thirds of its customers view cruise TV shopping as a staple form of entertainment.
What better way to spend the evening than watching other people enjoy themselves at sea !
