2007 – a record year for the cruise industry?

New and refurbished ships in 2007 – as well as new ports of call – look set  raise the standards offered  in the cruise industry yet again. Seven new ships debuted in 2006, and a further nine are scheduled to launch in 2007.   And with trends suggesting that novice and veteran cruisers are indulging on upgrades, longer trips and more exotic locations, the future certain looks bright for the industry. What’s more, it’s predicted that Cruise Lines International Association’s (CLIA) message that advance bookings gives the best deals is one that cruisers will continue to  take heed of,  throughout 2007.
