The Big Three luxury: eight to 14-night exotic cruises

exotic

Exotic cruises of a decent length can start to look like an expensive proposition. But, don’t be tempted to sell on price. These three cruises include some destinations that British tourists would struggle to do without spending a considerable sum of money (the Silversea trip includes Papa New Guinea, for instance). So, from colonial-style luxury on the Ganges to a 10-night tour of the Middle East, always sell on destination. Especially when it comes to once in a lifetime cruises.

Following on from the publication of Cruise Adviser’s Luxury guide 2015-16, each week we will be running our Big Three feature, which gives you a trio of cruise options to choose from. This week it’s eight- to 14-night cruises to exotic locations.

Cruise Adviser top tip

Remember that selling a cruise on price is a poor strategy. Instead outline the quality of the holiday that customers are getting. If you have inquiries about this level of holiday then the chances are that customers can afford it. If you are upgrading passengers from a four-star product then outline what else is included at this level.
