The Cruise Examiner for 21st November 2011

This week, we look at three upmarket lines, Crystal Cruises, Seabourn and Silversea, and the world cruises they offer, plus Regent’s “build your own” world cruise. On Crystal’s 2014 cruise it is worth noting the lower number of port calls but the much longer stays of two and three nights in several ports as they join all-inclusive Seabourn and Silversea. Almost 20% (17 nights out of 89) of the Crystal cruise will be overnight stays. Elsewhere, Norwegian Breakaway will offer a spring Transatlantic sailing as her maiden voyage in 2013 before ramping up Norwegian Cruise Line’s New York to Bermuda capacity by 75%, while a River Cruise Expo with four river cruisers present has just finished in Amsterdam. We also look at some interesting projections of more people cruising from UK ports as opposed to flying to the ship as it seems 55,000 fewer people will fly to their cruise next year but 75,000 more will sail from the UK.
