“2019 CRUISE ROUND-UP & TRAVEL KICK-OFF WITH AAA CENTRAL PENN PRESIDENT, JODIE DAUBERT” – Two Part Series
If 2019 is the year for you and your family to take that well-deserved cruise vacation – good for you! There has never been so many ships or itineraries, in fact, 30-million Americans will be taking a cruise vacation in 2019 – up 1.8 million from 2018. This year 24 new cruise ships will be launched – and several more will undergo complete refurbishments.
Top trends for the year include – authentic, active & inspirational experiences – above and beyond sightseeing ; personalized itineraries, menus & amenities (especially in the luxury category) ; wellness & restoration – stepping off the ship feeling better, looking better and returning home with a new and healthy attitude towards your personal well-being ; female & solo travelers ; off-the-beaten-path adventure and expedition destinations & excursions ; booking suites on the mass ships & luxury on the smaller ships – travelers are looking for more luxury & personal space on land and sea.
Jodie Daubert, AAA Central Penn President , will kick off the new year with me and she will be asking me the questions concerning mass/contemporary ; premium ; premium plus/deluxe and luxury cruise lines.
