The UK Shows: Cruise Lines at the Daily Mail Cruise Show – Cruise Lines at the Daily Telegraph Travel Show

The Cruise Examiner for 19th February 2018

Viking Sea

The Viking Sea – Viking Cruises is one of eight cruise operators exhibiting at both London cruise fairs this month

The Cruise Show season is with us in London again and here is this week’s report. The most interesting comparison is between this weekend’s Daily Mail Cruise Show and next weekend’s DailyTelegraph Travel Show, with its Cruise showcase. And the most interesting finding is the lines or operators that are exhibiting at both shows. This is limited to eight operators: APT Luxury River Cruises, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises, Noble Caledonia, Regent Seven Seas Cruises, Saga Cruises, Star Clippers, Titan Travel and Viking Cruises. None of these lines operates a ship that can carry more than 1,000 guests. It is interesting what this says about shows being hands-on places for luxury and small ship operators while the mass market lines now rely more on screens than stands to sell their wares.
