Cruise Travel on the Up and Up

Cruise numbers are still on the rise. Today Windstar Cruises reported record sales during the first six weeks of the year for 2010 and 2011 sailings.

Compared to this same period in 2009 net revenue is up 94 percent, and Windstar attributes this to wave season promotions including Windstar's Europe on Sale offer and a 2010 Costa Rica and Caribbean One-Week Sale.

And on an even more positive note, Windstar's charter and incentive business has boosted net revenue for 2011 to almost double what it was for the same period in 2010.
