Cruise Holidays Stores See Strong Wave

Cruise Holidays stores in the U.S. and Canada were polled during the period Jan. 23 to Feb. 3 and characterized their Wave Season bookings as follows: 53 percent the strongest ever; 22 percent stronger than 2005; 13 percent about even with 2005; 6 percent not as strong as 2005, and 5 percent much worse than 2005. Because of automatic rounding, Cruise Holidays noted that the results do not equal 100 percent. Seventy-seven stores voted, and the responses represented half the Cruise Holidays location. So more than 75 percent of Cruise Holidays stores said bookings were better than 2005 or the best ever, and nearly 90 percent said Wave Season bookings were above or the same as last year.
