Next time, we’ll be taking a look at the cruise industry’s response to the coronavirus outbreak, tracing the timeline and asking whether operators involved could see a difference in their bottom lines as a result of the virus’ spread.
We’ll also be taking a closer look at the design of the new SkyDome onboard P&O’s upcoming cruise ship Iona, investigate whether demand is increasing for tall ship cruises, and find out how pioneering small ship operator Lindblad Expeditions is promoting sustainability in its voyages.
Also in the next issue, we examine retail and food trends onboard cruise ships, and find out whether operators should be investing more time and money into appealing to solo travellers. Finally, we ask about what business considerations need to be made following major cruise line acquisitions, after Tui Cruises announced its plans to expand through its £1bn acquisition of Hapag-Lloyd Cruises.
