According to recent scientific investigations, pollution levels are 60 times higher than ‘fresh air’ on cruise ships. The research, commissioned by Thalassa (a French documentary television series), was carried out on abroad a ship leaving Marseille, and is now warning people against the potential health implications.
According to the Association of British Travel Agents’ (ABTA’s) annual Holiday Habits report, cruising is currently the 7th most popular holiday type, with 8% of all Brits taking a cruise in the last 12 months. Of these people, 68% would be happy to go on another cruise, with only 32% preferring not to cruise again.
Last month the World’s largest cruise ship (330 foot longer than the Titanic) set sail from Southampton for its maiden voyage. The ship, which is longer than four football pitches and the Eiffel Tower at 1,188 feet long, can carry 6,780 passengers and is worth a cool £800million.
At the 2017 CES Gadget Show in Las Vegas, Carnival Cruises unveiled futuristic technology which will be debuted on their Royal Princess ship this year. The technology centres on giving all passengers a wearable coin-sized ‘medallion’ tracker, which will help the ship and crew better serve the customer.
Carnival has launched its newest and most innovative cruise ship to date; ‘the Vista’, which promises to ‘switch on the fun’ for its passengers (both young and old), including a water park, brewery, cinema, non-stop port visits and adrenaline pumping SkyRide.
We’ve all arrived home from a fabulous holiday only to realise that we’ve left something behind, for example a pair of sunglasses or perhaps some clothing, but now a number of cruise staff have been surveyed to find the weirdest and things left behind by passengers.
