Jenni Fielding, cruise expert at Cruise Mummy commented on the findings:
“Searches by UK residents for cruises hit a five-year high at the beginning of 2023, indicating how popular cruises are, particularly as traveling has become far easier with the near eradication of pandemic restrictions.
Cruises offer couples, families, and solo travelers a chance to explore a variety of cultures, historical sites, and activities without compromising on accommodation.
With trends indicating that searches for cruises generally spike during the new year, it will be interesting to see if these popular cruise destinations remain the most sought-after for 2024 holidaying, or are to be replaced by newly trending destinations, whether that be the warmer cruises of the Caribbean or the colder climates like as Alaska and Norway.”
