Why younger travellers are choosing to cruise

Younger travellers choosing to cruise

Although cruise getaways are often seen as the holiday of choice for the older generation, more and more travellers under 30 are now opting for cruises over conventional holidays. This trend has emerged as cruise lines do more to cater for younger travellers, offering fresh and exciting features designed to entice a new demographic.

Royal Caribbean in particular is leading the way when it comes to new and innovative on-board features, with the introduction of their latest Quantum-class vessels. Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas will boasts a plethora of amazing facilities – including a collection of firsts at sea – from the colossal SeaPlex sports and entertainment complex to skydiving simulators and fast food burger bars. The line has always been a family-friendly option, but these new and exciting innovations are guaranteed to draw a younger crowd on-board.

Other cruise lines are also following suit. Norwegian Cruise Line’s recent Breakaway-class ships – Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Getaway – both contain facilities aimed at younger travellers, such as a massive on-board waterpark, an incredible Illusionarium and a brand new show – Legally Blonde the Musical.

Cruise lines are pushing forward into the 21st century with an array of new approaches to cruise ship features. If you would like to book your next voyage and enjoy these innovations for yourself, simply call our Cruise Concierge team on 0808 1234 118.
