It’s National Cruise Month!

The Holiday With Us Group is pushing the boat out for Cruise Lines International Association’s (CLIA) Plan a Cruise Month which launches today, highlighting the thousands of worldwide destinations and variety of experiences that can be discovered whilst on a cruise holiday. Throughout Plan a Cruise Month, the cruise industry has come together to give travellers the opportunity to learn more about cruising, including tips on the best ways to plan and book a cruise.

The Holiday With Us Group hopes to raise awareness of the huge amount of cruise styles available, whether it’s family fun in the Mediterranean, lazy trips down a European river, an adventure in Alaska or indulgence in the Far East; there’s a cruise for everyone.

New to this year’s campaign is the structure of themed cruise weeks. As a way of showcasing the diverse experiences cruise holidays offer, each week of Plan a Cruise Month will focus on a different theme including Family, Discovery, River and Luxury Cruise Weeks. Each theme aims to put a spotlight on the different aspects of cruise travel, giving travellers the chance to find out more about their desired cruising experience.

Throughout the month of October, great value added offers from CLIA cruise line members will be available to ensure those who are looking to go on their first cruise or those returning cruise customers have an amazing trip to look forward to.

Donna Woodthorpe, the Holiday With Us Group’s Cruise Coordinator, said: “Cruising today offers customers such great value for money with the inclusion of meals at popular on board restaurants, a variety of activities, first class entertainment, accommodation, and of course the opportunity to visit multiple destinations in a single trip only having to unpack once. Over the course of Plan a Cruise Month there will be special offers and added value incentives from industry partners to encourage our customers to get planning their next break.”
