Push the boat out for the Sixth National Cruise Week (21 -29 September 2013) with the latest news from the Adventure cruise companies and fantastic offers to exciting destinations worldwide
The sixth annual National Cruise Week takes place between 21-29 September. This year the focus is to get 'Britain and Ireland Cruising' by highlighting the great range of destinations and experiences that cruising offers UK consumers both on board and ashore.
The campaign's aim is to encourage more people to consider a cruise holiday for the first time and highlight the range of cruises available from river cruising along the European waterways to ocean cruises that travel to destinations only accessible by sea.
The number of holidaymakers who take a cruise holiday continues to grow with more than 1.7 million Brits taking a cruise last year. The popularity of a cruise holiday lies in the exciting itineraries, experiences and destinations available from members of the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) which has 60 cruise line members.
Andy Harmer, CLIA UK and Ireland director, said: "This year we will celebrate the sixth National Cruise Week, an event that has gone from strength to strength thanks to the terrific support of travel agents and our cruise line members. More people than ever choose to cruise because of the incredible range of cruises available, the fabulous destinations, some of which are only accessible by sea, and the wonderful value added experiences that I don't believe are available from any other type of holiday. All-in-all, young or old, solo or family, there is a cruise to suit everyone's taste and everyone's pocket."
Three Cruise Shows are also taking place in Manchester (7 & 8 September), Birmingham (21 & 22 September) and Glasgow (5 & 6 October) where visitors are able to meet cruise lines and discover inspirational travel ideas.
The Discover Cruises website www.discovercruises.co.uk is the home for everything cruise, whether it's for a family travelling for the first time, a couple looking for adventure, or a solo traveller in need of a relaxing spa break - all of which can be classed as a great journey.
