Cruise Trade News May/June 2024

What’s that one travel memory you simply love to share? Is it the time you stumbled upon a tucked-away cicchetti bar on your last visit to Venice, the one that did a delicious line of fresh seafood crostini? Or perhaps it’s that hidden beach you discovered somewhere along the French Riviera with the sugar-white sand you dream of sinking your toes into on gloomy days.

Mine is Sidi Bou Saïd in northern Tunisia, a hilly seaside town 20 minutes from Tunis with immaculate blue-and-white buildings and jaw-dropping ocean views. And I have to give a special mention to a certain whisky bar onboard Viking Polaris which I was lucky enough to spend a few too many evenings in on my recent voyage around eastern Canada.

My point is that anyone who has been fortunate enough to travel has a place or a moment they hold close to their hearts. So when it came to planning this issue’s Mediterranean feature on page 54, we decided to ask our readers if they would like to share some of the hidden gems that are dear to them. The result is a wonderful collection of cruise destinations that are perfect for your clients’ next horizon-broadening break.

We also have a jam-packed features section for you to dive into, with our latest CTN Investigates long read on page 37 exploring why cruise travellers are getting younger (did you know more than a third of guests are now under 40?).

There’s all that, plus a stellar line-up of inspiring travel features designed to get your customers dreaming of their next holiday.

Happy reading!
