Cruise Sales Boom-Try One!

In a year end report, Expedia CruiseShipCenters said it continues to ride the wave of cruising’s popularity, reporting year end growth of 18 percent on sales and bookings of $310 million. “Clearly, the popularity of cruise vacations continues to grow, especially in the first-time cruise market,” says Matthew Eichhorst, president of Expedia CruiseShipCenters. “Cruising also offers the best value for the money and, for 2009, our client bookings are already ahead of this same time last year by 14 percent.”
The year saw the launch of more than 10 new ships including the much anticipated Celebrity Solstice, which featured among its many innovations a Lawn Club sporting freshly manicured real grass with a putting green and lawn bowling area.
The Caribbean remains the most popular cruise destination but, cruising to more exotic destinations is gaining popularity. Panama Canal, South America, South Pacific and World Cruises were 18 percent, Alaska was 16 percent and Europe 14 percent.
I thoroughly agree with the comment that cruising offers the best value for the money when considering a vacation. I like alot of activity and entertainment when taking a vacation and cruising gives you all of that. Just want to relax and unwind, cruising gives you that too. Bon Voyage.
