The fourth National Cruise Week will be held from September 18 to 25, with travel agencies holding events to highlight the world of cruising
The fourth National Cruise Week will be held from September 18 to 25, with travel agencies, which are accredited to the Association of Cruise Experts (ACE), offering promotional packs and holding events to highlight the world of cruising.
People who love to go on cruise holidays have been urged to take advantage of the opportunity to get on board P&O Arcadia, P&O Aurora, P&O Azura, Grand Princess or Holland America Line's MS Rotterdam, in port around the coast.
However, cruise lovers should make sure they have taken out a good
travel insurance policy before getting on board.
According to figures, a record 1.7 million people are expected to cruise this year, while 10 new ships will be launched.
William Gibbons, director of the Passenger Shipping Association (PSA), said: "We are delighted to be announcing the fourth National Cruise Week. The reason cruise holidays are growing in popularity is because of the excellent value and high standards.
"And of course you are taken to multiple destinations all included within the price meaning cruise holidays have enjoyed a boom over the past two years and we predict more than 2m passengers in 2014."
