Hot new destinations!
With travel becoming increasingly more popular, new destinations are leading the way in popular travel spots. This year Uruguay led the pack in top emerging destinations boasting numerous award winning wineries, a pleasant climate, and multiple adventure opportunities. The Maldives, Malta, and Romania also made the list while fan favorites like South Africa and Israel were strongly represented. 

With 2020 on the horizon, the cruise line industry is set to release 21 new ships in the upcoming year!

The average number of days between the day the cruise was booked and the date the cruise sails in 2019:

  • Contemporary and Premium 182 days
  • Luxury 296 days
  • River 290 days

How does that impact you? As this booking window widens it becomes more and more important to block the space for group space as offerings will be closed as well as the ability to charter a ship.
