Choose an ex­pe­di­tion

Cruise Weekly - - News -

IN THE fi­nal week of Cruise Lines In­ter­na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion (CLIA) Aus­trala­sia’s an­nual month-long cruise pro­mo­tion #ChooseCruise, the as­so­ci­a­tion is en­cour­ag­ing trav­ellers to choose an ex­pe­di­tion cruise for a true ad­ven­ture on the high seas.

Ac­cord­ing to CLIA Aus­trala­sia & Asia Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Joel Katz, ex­pe­di­tion cruis­ing is one of the in­dus­try’s big­gest growth sec­tors with nearly a quar­ter of the new ships on or­der classed as small or ex­pe­di­tion ships.

“Ex­pe­di­tion cruis­ing is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a surge in pop­u­lar­ity that will con­tinue for years to come as dozens of new ships take to the seas, of­fer­ing more choice than ever be­fore,” he said.

“Packed with en­rich­ing ex­pe­ri­ences from up-close-and-per­sonal wildlife en­coun­ters in Antarc­tica to thrilling jour­neys deep into the Kim­ber­ley wilder­ness, ex­pe­di­tion cruis­ing is a great way to make an au­then­tic con­nec­tion with a des­ti­na­tion.”

Katz also believes ex­pe­di­tion cruises “are of­ten the first port of call for trav­ellers who don’t con­sider them­selves typ­i­cal cruis­ers, as well as the last port of call for fre­quent cruis­ers ready to try some­thing dif­fer­ent.”
