Princess Cruises in collaboration with Wakefield Research, revealed the findings of its 10th Annual Relaxation survey. With ten years of data analyzing the sleep and vacation habits of adults, this year’s survey reinforces the stress and lack of relaxation experienced by adults globally. The results from the survey show more than half of those surveyed are getting less sleep than they need (52%) – a decrease of one percent from last year.
Taking time off is one of the ways for adults to relax and de-stress. The survey found that over half of those surveyed (58%) took all of the vacation days available to them in the last year. At 68%, U.K. respondents were the best at taking all of their vacation days, while Australians came in last at 43%. Just ahead of Australia and Indonesia (52%), 54% of Americans reported utilizing all of their time off. However, when using their vacation days, 81% of those who are employed take days off to catch up on sleep – an increase of four percent.
Princess Cruises is committed to ensuring its guests come back from vacation feeling refreshed, renewed and rejuvenated. As part of its Come Back New Promise, and commitment to inspire vacations Princess Cruises partnered with board-certified sleep expert, Dr. Michael Breus to develop the Princess Luxury Bed offering guests the ultimate night of sleep at sea.
“Sleep allows our bodies to recharge and recover from mental and physical strains, which is important for overall health. Year over year, we continue to see how the lack of sleep negatively impacts people around the globe,” said Dr. Breus. “As people continue to take less vacation time, we know it’s more important than ever for people to maximize their time off. I’m proud to collaborate with Princess Cruises, one of the best known names in relaxation, to offer passengers the award-winning Princess Luxury Bed for them to lay their heads on at night.”
