We’re seeing demand, says Cruise World

Demand for long haul international travel has returned –especially for 2023 and beyond – says NZ niche cruise and small ship adventure specialist, Cruise World, which also represents American Queen Voyages in New Zealand.

Releasing early bird savings of US$2000 per couple for a 2023 riverboat adventure on the iconic Mississippi River with American Queen Voyages, Cruise World reports that after two challenging years, 2022 has begun promisingly with steady enquiries from New Zealanders keen to explore the world again.

‘It’s encouraging to see green shoots of interest and engagement for long haul travel, with many guests realising that they need to book ahead due to issues with availability otherwise they will not be able to travel, even when travel restrictions lift, due to the high level of bookings from other parts of the world,’ Cruise World director Joe O’Sullivan says.

‘We ran a successful zero-deposit promotion until 31 January 2022 for American Queen Voyages’ Mississippi River departures. It’s reassuring to have most of these bookings confirm their intention to travel by depositing by the due date at the end of January 2022,’ O’Sullivan adds.
