Default Where do you see cruising in 2010?

What trends do you see happening to change cruising as we know it today? What will cruising be like in 2010 and beyond?

I see more pay as you go with cheaper ticket prices. I think we'll have to buy tickets to the shows. Maybe cover charges to go to the disco.

I think we'll see more departure ports.

What do you think?

Regards,
Thomas

I think we'll see more "packages" created. I agree with Thomas -more pay as you go - and I think they'll be in the form of packages.

An entertainment package would include all the shows and x number of drinks.

A shore excursion package would include a shore excursion in every port.

Casino package - x number of dollars in the casino, etc.

A family package might include x number of soft drink cards, a family shore excursion and a t-shirt or two - maybe even babysitting hours.

I think the cruiselines will figure out that pay as you go will tick people off, but if packaged well, people will feel as though they are getting a "deal."
