Today marks the start of CLIA #ChooseCruise month. For the next four weeks we’ll be updating you on the latest in cruise news and this week we’re featuring ocean cruising.
Australians and New Zealanders are taking their wanderlust to sea with ocean cruising increasingly becoming their holiday of choice. One of the fastest growing industries down under, the ocean cruise market has been experiencing phenomenal growth over the past decade with cruise passenger numbers skyrocketing.
So, what’s all the fuss about?
It’s simple – cruising ticks all the boxes for a great break. It’s an easy, fun and great value way to travel whether it’s a romantic getaway, a solo sojourn or an all-in family holiday.
For most, it’s the value of a cruise that brings them back time and time again. Even the cheapest cruises include main meals, accommodation, entertainment and transport in the fare, while some are all-inclusive meaning you rarely have to reach for your wallet.
Add in the ease of travel – guests only have to unpack once and destinations come to them – and the fact the holiday starts the moment guests board their ship, so there are no long drives, airport queues or battling traffic, and it is easy to see why it’s a compelling choice.
Whether travellers are looking for a world cruise from their homeport, a week-long holiday around the Pacific, or a mini break somewhere fun and easy, they are spoilt for choice when it comes to ocean cruising.
Cruising presents an almost unbeatable value proposition domestically but for those wanting to explore oceans further afield, an ocean cruise can also offer a great value way to see any part of the world.
