With first time cruiser numbers increasing by nearly a third, record breaking new ships launching, exciting destinations and exhilarating excursions plus out-of-this-world onboard features, the number of people holidaying at sea is sure to rise again in 2016. Seven glorious new ocean vessels, adding approximately 18,500 berths, are set to make waves in oceans across the world when they launch during 2016; there’s the first I-MAX Theater at sea, a bionic bar, a micro-brewery, a Culinary Arts Centre and much more! 

Not to be overshadowed by their larger equivalents, new river cruise ships launching in 2016 will continue to provide a more intimate and luxurious experience, reaching parts of the world only accessible by water. You can discover remote temples and mosques along the Ganges, travel the meandering Douro River in Portugal, or navigate the notoriously low waters of the river Elbe in Germany, all from the comfort of your boutique style suite. Whether it is opulence or amusement, well-being or thrill seeking, the possibilities are endless when choosing a cruise that’s right for you.

If you’re new to the idea of cruising and need help to plan your first voyage, or an experienced cruiser looking for inspiration, this show is a perfect start to finding your ideal cruise-holiday.
