Young people, aged between 15 and 24, are turning on to the idea of cruising because of the variety of entertainment options on board.
In a recent study carried out by Mintel, 2,000 people were quizzed about their views on cruise holidays abroad.
The findings revealed that while only four per cent of those youngsters quizzed had been on a cruise, an impressive 40 per cent admit they would consider one of these packages in the near future.
Cruise holidays offer a wealth of entertainment options for young passengers, with onshore activities and days of exploration complemented by onboard entertainment such as cinemas, arcades, swimming facilities and sports areas.
Have you ever been on a cruise with a young adult? Did they enjoy it?
