There is a new reason why more families are taking to the seas to see the world this year. Bloomberg recently reported that American consumer confidence is a main factor in why cruise bookings are up 4.4% over last year. The willingness to spend discretionary income on meaningful family vacations has the industry adjusting to meet demands. One such adjustment is increasing the options available for families big and small to travel comfortably and have the best experience possible.
Carolyn Spencer Brown, editor in chief of Cruise Critic (previously of the Washington Post), recently joined me from London where she just previewed the first new ocean cruise line in almost a decade. Sailing on the maiden voyage of the new Viking Ocean Cruises ship, Viking Star, from Istanbul to Venice. She shared her personal thoughts on the new ocean cruise line, as well as the newest trends in cruising, and how the cruise industry is changing to help more families see the world by sea.
