Cunard’s international development director David Rousham said that the majority of Australian passengers that account for the surge are in fact newcomers to cruising.
He said: “overall our Australian guest numbers have risen by almost one-third in 2014, with the number of Australians we are carrying on Mediterranean cruises more than tripling compared to 2013, and world voyage guest numbers also rising 20%.”
It also appears that the Australian guests are getting younger!
David explained: “while our world voyages naturally appeal to an older demographic which has the time to take a longer holiday, we’ve found that the proportion of guests aged between 19 and 50 years has more than doubled on the Australian coastal sectors of those voyages.”
