Published on : Wednesday, January 16, 2019

More than two million British travellers took a cruise last year for the first time is expected to be confirmed by CLIA UK & Ireland.

 

 

As the key 2018 summer travelling period are released, positive figures can be notices showing a positive rise of 2.1 per cent as compared to the same period in 2017.

 

 

Prior year the total number of cruises taken between January and September went upto 1,338,000 in 2018 from 1,310,000 in the same period the prior year.

 

 

In spring the full-year figures will be announced, also the cruise customers had shown strong demand during the all-important post-Christmas sales period.

 

 

Since the beginning of 2019 the UK cruise industry is in a strong position inspite of facing political uncertainties surrounding Brexit.

 

 

The UK government and ABTA have issued official guidance on passenger travel to the EU by air, rail, or sea post Brexit specially if there is a no Brexit deal. This is in regards to the travel arrangements taking place after March 29th.

 

 

Cruise operators will continue on the same basis as toady if there is no EU Exit deal from March 29th  as per the CLIA.

 

Andy Harmer, CLIA UK & Ireland director welcomed the advice and hopes it reassures UK and EU citizens planning a cruise holiday.

 

 

He said that all UK travellers should check the expiry date of their passport when booking travel arrangements along with ensuring that there is atleast a six months’ validity during the time of travel.
