Princess Cruises has expanded the depth of its study to a global audience, adding representation from Singapore, Taiwan, Japan, Hong Kong, China, Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, United Kingdom, and Australia.
The global results when it comes to relaxation and sleep are surprisingly similar across different countries. According to results of the survey by Wakefield Research for Princess Cruises, global adults aren’t dedicating time for sleep or relaxation, with more than half (51%) of global adults reporting they get less sleep than they need on an average night and 80 percent of adults are using weekend days to make up for sleep lost during the weekday.
One way employees can set aside time to relax is to take a vacation, and the survey found that a little over half of those surveyed (55%) took all of the vacation days available to them in the last year with the UK respondents at the top of the list (76%) and the Japanese at the bottommost (28%). Of those who did not use all of their vacation days, the top reasons are:
They had too much work to get done (38%)
They couldn’t find a good time to take off (34%)
There was a lack of support at work to take time off (25%)
And when using their vacation days, 75 percent of those who are employed take days off to catch up on sleep – seven days on average per year.
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, Princess Cruises partnered with leading experts in both the science and beauty of sleep to develop the Princess Luxury Bed. Together with board-certified sleep expert Dr. Michael Breus and designer Candice Olson, Princess Cruises now delivers its guests the ultimate night of sleep at sea.
