News From Your Travel Club

I hope this finds you well and that we are all getting ready for the “Iso get out of jail” card. There is little to update you on this week. I know a few of you are getting frustrated with the length of time refunds are taking, but there is nothing we can do to expedite these. We have everyone’s interest at the forefront and can only action these as they come to hand. We appreciate your patience and look forward to finalising these as they come to hand. Members taking credits – there is much to be thinking about in the meantime.

I understand that cruising has received some negative reports in some circles but the daily media does not always print the facts or both sides of the story. Cruises are the ultimate hospitality experience and much is being done in the cruise industry preparing for the next wave of guests, revolutionising and even refurbishing ships.

Meantime here is some cruising trivia you might be interested in:

Cruise ships are neither the cause or source of Coronavirus. It can be transmitted in any social environment where people come together.

The world cruise industry is a community that spreads far beyond the cruise lines themselves, creating an economic impact worth more than US$134 billion a year globally and supporting employment for 1.1m people in destinations around the world.

Cruise passengers represent 2% of tourist numbers worldwide.

The cruise industry represents just 1% of world shipping but is a leader in environmental advancements.

Cruise lines are committed to environmental sustainability: 22 billion in energy efficiency – LNG Fuel; Exhaust Gas Cleaning Systems; Wastewater Treatment Systems; Shore-side Power Capability.

The cruise industry recycles 60% more waste per person than the average person does on land.

The cruise industry is building reefs, restoring fisheries and working with many coastal communities to help create business opportunities and support efforts in health, education and more.

Cruise lines source food from local producers including Australian farmers.

Between 2008 and 2018, cruise lines’ capacity grew by 55%

Globally there are 122 new cruise ships set for delivery by 2027 at a total cost of US$64 billion.
Over 30 million people worldwide cruise – 1.35 million Australians took an ocean cruise in 2018
In 2018 the majority of Australian cruisers continued to sail within Australia, New Zealand & the South Pacific – in fact 76%. As a result regional ports and destinations benefit with cruisers delivering significant economic impact to local communities including restaurants, hotels, shops & local tour operators etc

Flying and cruising will be safe again given the measures that are being undertaken for passengers and crew. It will probably be quite different as we read snippets in the news of what the future might be like.
