American Travelers Eager To Cruise The Seas Again, Study Shows

American Travelers Eager To Cruise The Seas Again

The vast majority of American travelers intend to take a cruise in the next two years, according to a recent InsureMyTrip survey. The survey also found that they are not waiting for the regular “wave season” before booking these trips.

To survey Americans who have taken a cruise in the past or are considering one, the travel insurance company collaborated with cruise comparison website CruiseCompete.

An astounding 96.1 percent of respondents said they plan to cruise in the next two years, while only 1.1 percent said they do not, and the remaining 2.8 percent said they are not yet sure.

“The results of this survey show travelers are, once again, feeling comfortable cruising,” says InsureMyTrip Product Director Meghan Walch. “The cruise industry took a big hit during the pandemic. It is encouraging to see the cruise industry bounce back after a couple of tough years.”

According to the study, cruise passengers prefer to travel around the end of the year. These new data-driven analyzes show that September, October, November and December are the most popular cruise months for American vacationers.

It’s not surprising that travelers are now paying more money for their cruises given the record economic inflation. The average price of an insured cruise holiday as of 2022, according to InsureMyTrip researchers, is $6,367. In 2019, before to the pandemic, the cost of a cruise was $5,420 on average.
