All-inclusive cruises a 'good value' holiday pick

British over 50s looking for a cost-effective holiday option are increasingly turning to cruises for their all-inclusive nature, according to the Passenger Shipping Association (PSA).

William Gibbons, director of the PSA, said that cruise holidays have shaken off their niche reputation and are increasingly seen as a convenient mainstream choice that allows holidaymakers to purchase all their travel expenses in one go.

He said: "Cruising has got a big advantage because of its all-inclusive nature and its value If you take a two-week cruise, you have paid for all your meals."

The cruise has experienced growing popularity in recent times with an 11 per cent increase in booking representing the third consecutive year of industry growth, which has prompted cruise companies to increase their docking capacity in UK ports.

Popular cruise destinations include Western Europe and the Caribbean, with the Mediterranean remaining the UK's favourite cruise holiday locale.
