Europe’s biggest cruise event returns to Olympia 18-19 February


Europe’s biggest event dedicated to discovering a world of voyages, The 9th annual London CRUISE Show, is taking place at Olympia London from February 18-19.

Join the largest collection of world leading cruise lines and specialist operators all under one roof, showcasing everything from large resort style ships catering for over 3000 people to smaller, more intimate vessels carrying just 50 people. This leading event of its kind is perfect for both those new to cruising and needing help to plan their first voyage, and experienced cruisers looking for ideas for their next holiday at sea.

With first time cruiser numbers increasing by nearly a third, record breaking new ships launching, exciting destinations and exhilarating excursions plus out-of-this-world onboard features, the number of people holidaying at sea is sure to rise again during 2016. Seven glorious new ocean vessels, adding approximately 18,500 berths, have been making waves in oceans across the world this year; there’s the first I-MAX Theatre at sea, a bionic bar, a micro-brewery, a Culinary Arts Centre and much more.

Not to be overshadowed by their larger equivalents, new river cruise ships launched this year have continued to provide a more intimate and luxurious experience, reaching parts of the world only accessible by water. You can discover remote temples and mosques along the Ganges, travel the meandering Douro River in Portugal, or navigate the notoriously low waters of the river Elbe in Germany, all from the comfort of your boutique style suite. Whether it is opulence or amusement, well-being or thrill seeking, the possibilities are endless when choosing a cruise that’s right for you. 

If you’re new to the idea of cruising and need help to plan your first voyage, or an experienced cruiser looking for inspiration, this show is a perfect start to finding your ideal cruise holiday. The CRUISE show will provide the chance to meet directly with the biggest collection of world leading cruise lines and specialist operators under one roof.

Visitors will also enjoy exclusive money-saving show offers and upgrades, be inspired by the informative free talks, gain essential expert advice that you won’t find in the brochure, discover different ship styles and incredible destinations and hear directly from the cruise lines about what’s new for 2017 and beyond.
