The Best Luxury Gifts For Cruise Aficionados

Must Try

It is expected that travel spending this holiday season will be higher than any of the last four years, at least. According to Skyscanner’s recent survey of 18,000 travelers, “against a backdrop of higher average fares vs pre-pandemic … people are continuing to invest their discretionary spend in leisure trips through 2023 and into 2024.” Convenience in travel will be everything this year — a disposition cruise travelers are experts at. According to Caryn Seidman Becker, CEO and co-founder of Clear, “we know that travelers increasingly prioritize time as one of their most valuable assets ― they’re looking for ways to minimize wasted travel time and maximize convenience.”

With ease of travel in mind, here are the best luxury gifts for cruise aficionados.
