“we also see significant opportunities to develop cruise tourism as a holiday of choice in emerging markets including among gcc travellers — something that was a topic of much discussion with the cruise industry at atm. cruising is a perfect choice for families travelling together — with most cruise companies offering fantastic deals that include food accommodation and free travel for children under the age of eight with prices starting at just 450. it also enables tourists to visit as many as four or five different destinations within a week and we see huge potential for growth at a local and regional level.”
