The number of Britons choosing to set off on an ocean cruise from a UK port has reached an all-time high, figures show
New figures released by the Passenger Shipping Association (PSA) have shown that the number of Britons choosing to set off on an ocean cruise holiday from a UK port has reached an all-time high.
UK ports will see 835,000 people depart on cruise ventures, possibly with a comprehensive
cruise travel insurance policy, in 2012. The figure marks a rise of 28% over the past two years.
Holidaymakers board their cruise ships to destinations such as Russia, Scandinavia, the Norwegian fjords, Iceland, the Mediterranean, America, the coast of Britain and Ireland, from 20 ports in the UK.
According to the PSA, the UK cruise industry witnessed growth of over 5% this year.
There is expected to be a 1% year-on-year rise in the number of people setting off on a cruise holiday to 1.73 million in 2012, figures show.
