WA a hit with ‘Cruisers’

July 6, 2016 Cruise No Comments Email Email

Western Australia has experienced unprecedented growth in the cruise travel sector in the last few years with WA registering the biggest growth in the nation last year.

“According to Cruise Down Under, cruise ships visiting WA generated $275.3 million in 2014-15,” says Sarah Anne Bignell from helloworld Belmont.

Ms Bignell said there were many reasons why cruising has become so popular.

“Cruises eliminate the stress and effort associated with planning lengthy itineraries and the research that comes with traveling to a new place.

“Plus it’s usually a cost effective way of travelling and most cruises offer passengers the opportunity to learn, do, feel and connect when in port.

“There’s also a feeling of camaraderie on board; a cruise exposes travellers to a new community with the opportunity to meet other travellers, participate in group activities and excursions, or explore on your own,” Ms Bignell said.

“Nationally, cruise shipping also plays an important role in the Australian tourism industry. Many leading cruise lines include Australia in their programs,” Ms Bignell said

“Cruising isn’t just for older travellers, it’s recommended for all age groups and families, there really is something for everyone.”

helloworld Belmont won the 2014 and 2015 Best Retail Business Award in the Belmont Small Business Awards. Other awards include being the 2012 helloworld Agency of the Year, and Top 10 most improved stores in 2015.
