Alongside the reduced cost, the other big incentive for cruise passengers is thought to be the outstanding variety of destinations available. Instead of being seen as a supplementary or secondary getaway, cruises are now taking centre stage as many couples and families choose them for this main trip.
As the UK's largest independent cruise retailer, Thomas Cook has also revealed that popular cruise destinations include areas as diverse as Barcelona and the Mediterranean, Las Vegas and the Mexican Riviera, Beijing and the Far East.
New customers are also thought to be flocking to Thomas Cook cruise packages thanks to the new availability of 21 regional airports.
With holidaymakers in areas like the North and Scotland now experiencing easy access to ports like Southampton, new cruise markets continue to open up on a daily basis.SOURCE Thomas Cook Cruise
