Expedition cruise sector to grow 30% by 2022
The expedition cruise sector will grow 30 per cent by 2022, according to the chairman of Clia’s expedition working group.
Peter Shanks, who is also the managing director of Silversea, said 90 per cent of travel agents expected their expedition sales to grow over the next five years and that 73 per cent had seen more demand for expedition cruising.
The results were revealed at Clia’s Expedition Cruise Forum, which saw Robin West, Seabourn’s expedition chief, take to the stage to share some of his favourite destinations, including South Georgia and Aldabra.
“Guests do not know how incredible expedition travel is until they experience it,” he said.
