UK cruise passenger numbers up in 2012

  • 1.72m Brits taking an ocean cruise in 2012
  • Over 2% growth  predicted in 2013 to 1.76m UK cruises
  • Over $12 billion of long term new cruise ship investment planned for 2013-15

 
The Passenger Shipping Association (PSA) has today released the latest UK cruise industry figures. They estimate that 1.72m Brits will take an ocean cruise this year, that's 20,000 more than the 1.7m carried in 2011.
 
For 2013, the PSA is predicting a growth of more than 2% in UK cruises to 1.76m passengers, on the back of continued investment in new and refurbished cruise ships, and the continued popularity of ex-UK port cruises.
 
Some 80% of UK cruise sales come through Britain's travel agents, such as The Luxury Cruise Company, spearheaded by those specially trained to advise on cruise options through the Association of Cruise Experts (ACE).
 
Nearly $5 billion has been invested globally by the industry in six major new cruise ships launched this year, and a further $3.2billion will be spent on six more ships scheduled to enter service next year. Long term orders stretch out at an even higher level to 2015, representing more than $12bn of investment in new ships over the next three years alone.
