Clean Cruis­ing clients keen to cruise

Cruise Weekly - - Front Page -

MORE than half (61%) of Clean Cruis­ing cus­tomers said they are likely to cruise again be­fore the end of 2021, ac­cord­ing to a sur­vey con­ducted by the Queens­land-based cruise spe­cial­ist agency.

Gen­eral Man­ager & Di­rec­tor Dan Rus­sell re­vealed his cruise agency has con­ducted over 400 phone sur­veys with cus­tomers over the past four weeks, with the vast ma­jor­ity keen to go on a cruise next year, and 15% keen to do so be­fore the end of Jun.

33% said they would cruise post-vac­cine, and 6% did not want to cruise again.

Rus­sell pointed out the num­bers are in con­trast to the be­lief of Edith Cowan Univer­sity’s Ross Dowl­ing, aired on Mon’s edi­tion of A Cur­rent Af­fair, that most peo­ple won’t want to cruise un­til there is a vac­cine (CW 18 Aug).

The Clean Cruis­ing head added the lat­est re­sults had come even de­spite Vic­to­ria’s spike in in­fec­tions, with just 1% more say­ing they would never cruise again on top of the 5% of cus­tomers re­spond­ing that way dur­ing the first six weeks of the sur­vey (pic­tured).

“The au­di­ence are ex­ist­ing cruise cus­tomers, how­ever it is clear the vast ma­jor­ity are look­ing for­ward to cruis­ing prior to a vac­cine be­com­ing avail­able.”

He also added the cou­ple wax­ing lyri­cal about cruis­ing in A Cur­rent Af­fair were his own cus­tomers, and, “we’ve got thou­sands more just like them!”

Dowl­ing was also slammed by a num­ber of CW read­ers who viewed Mon’s seg­ment due to his Chair­man­ship of Cruise WA.
