Cruise holidays 'offer value for money'

Over 50s looking to escorted tours as a more convenient holiday option have been advised that cruising could offer a good value-for-money alternative.

A recent report from the Passenger Shipping Association (PSA) has showed an 18 per cent increase in cruise bed night bookings last year, with the average length of cruise holidays also increasing.

Penny Guy, a spokesperson for the PSA, suggested that many holidaymakers are taking advantage of the fact that cruise holidays can be paid for in sterling in order to tour the eurozone for a relatively reduced rate.

She also stated that the all-inclusive nature of such holidays was helping to improve the perception of cruising as a "high-value proposition" during the economic downturn.

Ms Guy said: "There is sustainability in a cruise holiday in that it provides accommodation, entertainment, food and also multiple destinations as you are going to different areas."
