Birmingham Cruise Show

Oct 18th, 2010 | By

Yesterday I went to the Daily Telegraph sponsored Cruise show at the NEC in Birmingham. So did thousands of you. And even more. At times you couldn’t see the carpet for people. The same, I am told, happened on Saturday. Try buying a cup of tea? Long queues were at those places as well as the stands.
So the organisers should have been pretty happy with the turnout. The exhibitors seemed to have been. At least in one sense. They were rushed off their feet and had little time to sit down. Brochures were being collected by the armload but were visitors just collectors or were they buying? Had they just come to enter the free competitions because just about every stand was offering a prize draw for a cruise?

Last year was a record year for the cruise industry in Britain. Nearly 1.5 million people went on a cruise up 11% over the previous year and of these, 577,000 cruised from a UK port.Traditionally cruises are thought of as exotic trips into warm climates. Lazy days at sea with the sun beating down as another gin and tonic was washed down. Some maybe, but today it is seen as an alternative to the all-inclusive holiday. After all, what other holiday can you take where
