With the holiday market experiencing its first downturn in demand for over a decade, short-haul cruising is bucking the trend by growing in market size. Trips departing from UK ports are finding favour with holidaymakers who want to see Europe and the Med without flying or having to change all their Pounds into Euros. All-inclusive packages, discounts, deals and the ability to use sterling on board are making the various short-haul cruise options attractive to an increasing number of consumers. In total, almost 1.5 million cruise holidays were taken in 2008, a 10% increase on 2007. For short-haul cruises this increase was even greater, at 20% year-on-year.
