Did you know that a staggering 1.8 million people from the UK and Ireland took a cruise last year? With first time cruiser numbers increasing by nearly a third, record breaking new ships launching, exciting destinations and exhilarating excursions plus out-of-this-world onboard features, the number of people holidaying at sea is sure to rise again in 2016. Seven glorious new ocean vessels, adding approximately 18,500 berths, are set to make waves in oceans across the world when they launch during 2016; there’s the first I-MAX Theater at sea, a bionic bar, a micro-brewery, a Culinary Arts Centre and much more!
Not to be overshadowed by their larger equivalents, new river cruise ships launching in 2016 will continue to provide a more intimate and luxurious experience, reaching parts of the world only accessible by water. You can discover remote temples and mosques along the Ganges, travel the meandering Douro River in Portugal, or navigate the notoriously low waters of the river Elbe in Germany, all from the comfort of your boutique style suite. Whether it is opulence or amusement, well-being or thrill seeking, the possibilities are endless when choosing a cruise that’s right for you.
Whether you’re looking for a once-in-a-lifetime expedition cruise to a far-flung destination, a sumptuous ultra-luxury voyage, maybe a relaxing cultural river cruise or a tropical family cruise-holiday with lots to entertain all ages – the CRUISE Show will have it all.
Packed with information and inspiration visitors can enjoy exclusive money-saving show offers and upgrades, be inspired by the informative free talks, gain essential expert advice that you won’t find in the brochure, discover different ship styles and incredible destinations and hear directly from the cruise lines about what’s new for 2017.
The CRUISE Show takes place in Birmingham’s NEC on 10-11 September and then Glasgow’s SECC on 8-9 October in 2016. Make sure you add the dates to your diary!
So, if you’re completely new to cruising and intrigued to discover what it’s all about, or you’re a seasoned cruiser wanting inspiration for your next adventure, then make sure you head to one of The CRUISE Shows this autumn.
