Cruising 'can provide varied culture and convenience'

Cruising could be an attractive holiday choice for over 50s looking for an easy way to experience a variety of different cultural experiences.

Over 50s who are seeking variety and comfort on their holidays may wish to go on a cruise, according to an expert.

Recent research from YouGov has indicated that holidaymakers are finding a wide range of reasons why cruising to foreign ports is an appealing travel option.

Among these are the impressive scenery on offer in popular locales such as Venice, Barcelona and Barbados, while culture and cuisine, as well as the ability to mingle with locals, were also cited as reasons to cruise.

However, Bob Atkinson, travel expert at, suggested that the best reason to choose a cruise holiday is the fact that such experiences are all provided together in an all-inclusive package.

He stated that holidaymakers are increasingly growing to enjoy the convenience of having transport, accommodation and food pre-arranged, which leaves them free to do as they please.

Mr Atkinson said: "You get an opportunity to visit a number of different places and see a number of different things without you having to make any effort around it."
