Travel agents are reporting an increase in bookings for longer cruises, a recent survey of Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) revealed.

According to the survey, 37 percent of agents reported an increase in bookings of 14- to 100-day cruises.
Longer sailings, including world cruises of several months, are increasingly popular among both retired and affluent travelers, according to travel agents.

Travel agents also reported that the top advantage of long cruises is the ability to see many places hassle free, without having to deal with multiple airports and packing and unpacking. Travellers also like the exciting itineraries offered by cruise lines to places around the world that would be difficult to visit on land.

The survey of 434 CLIA travel agents was conducted September 2014 and distributed via Survey Monkey, which draws on data related to short and long cruise itineraries.
