Cruise Sales Stay Strong

American Express recently surveyed 250 travel agencies about the state of their cruise sales.

85 % responded that business was strong and had not been impacted by recent negative cruise news.

This year the popular cruise destinations are the Mediterrean-37%, European rivers 28%, Caribbean 22 % and Alaska 11%. 

The biggest challenge-40% of the respondents are still waiting for future price drops!

Regardless there are some great prices many at all time lows! 

My advice-find a rate that fits your pricing points and go vacationing at sea!
