Cruise survey (for master thesis)
Dear cruisers,
we all love cruises, don`t we? :)

I am a very passionate cruiser as well as a student and I would really appreciate your support. Please find the link to my cruise survey here:

This survey is dedicated to the cruise industry and its related offers and services towards you, the leisure cruise passenger. (Note: This survey is independent and is not affiliated to any particular cruise shipping company.)

As a student with more than fifteen years of professional experience in the tourism sector, including numerous cruise trips done on my own, I have decided to focus on the cruise industry for my master’s thesis. Therefore, I hope to receive numerous returned questionnaires, which will potentially lead to concrete findings that will also help to improve the quality of your future cruise trips.

I would greatly appreciate your support! ;-)

Kindest regards,

Thanks Carie - I was surprised not to see an IRB disclaimer anywhere.

Master's in what?

I completed the survey . When I graduated college Al Gore had not as yet invented the internet and all my research was done at the school and local libraries .
The university in which I was enrolled as a grad student had copies of past Master thesis available for students to peruse.

Dear all,

thanks for your comments!

First of all: thanks to all of you who participated in the survey!! Interesting feedback. :)

@ green_rd: in fact, the IRB disclaimer will be part of my thesis but my university did not request me to add one in the related survey.

@ Sistersolo: "Master of Business Administration" (MBA) - following to a Bachelor in Tourism ...

@ Lakers Fan: thanks so much for your participation! And yes, times are changing. ;-) It is true that past master thesis are offline available for us as well ... anyhow, there is not even one that is related to the cruise industry as my university is not specialized in that area

Thanks again! ;)
Feel invited to provide me with any feedback, ideas, etc.!!

Best regards,

When I was in college I loved writing essays .I was one of the few who looked forward to writing a masters thesis .

Same for me - I started the survey pretty early in comparison to my classmates ...

Furthermore, I love cruises - so it is the perfect match! ;)

Do you like the survey? :)

Even though I was not able to participate in the survey you have initiated, I am happy for you. I hope you all have a nice time in evaluating the cruise experiences you had. I am also interested in such ***Edited to remove commercial reference*** that make a new meaning for a trip. It provides a great opportunity to make us away from the tiring works and busy schedules.
