New, billion-dollar cruise giant to call Australia home

New, billion-dollar cruise giant to call Australia home | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it

Australia will be the home port for Royal Caribbean's newest billion-dollar mega-liner - Ovation of the Seas- when it arrives in December 2016, making it the biggest ever ship ever based here. The $US1 billion ($A1.3 billion) ship, currently under construction in Germany, will be the length of more than three football fields and tower at 50m tall. It will house over 18 decks and have a capacity to hold almost 5000 guests and 1500 crew members. The mega-liner will be the largest cruise ship to be based in Australia to date. Voyager of the Seas is the current title holder for the largest ship to be based in Australia. Ovation of the Seas will be based at Sydney's Overseas Passenger Terminal in Circular Quay for its maiden 2016/17 Australian summer season. Ovation of the Seas is said to 'completely redefine' the experience of cruising in Australia with features and technologies described as first-time offerings for ships worldwide.

The importance of traits for top destinations

The importance of traits for top destinations | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it

Brand USA has fielded a study in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, Mexico, South Korea and the United Kingdom to better understand the influence and importance of various traits on travel decisions. The desire to visit the U.S. is most strongly driven by natural landscapes and cultural landscapes while Australia attracts visitors for its beautiful natural landscapes and beaches. Spain's special events draw the interest of travellers while Italy and France are known for their cultural and historical attractions. Natural features and landscapes are the top draw for most markets, followed often by cultural attractions. While dining is not considered the strongest attraction for any country, travellers interested in visiting Italy are the most likely to be motivated by food. U.S. visitors are the least likely to be motivated by its food. Click here for more information.

Solo female travellers on the rise

Solo female travellers on the rise | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it

TripAdvisor has marked International Women’s Day with a refreshing survey, showing solo female travellers are on the rise. The Women's Travel Survey, which looked at over 9000 women globally, and almost 2000 women from Australia, showed that independent travel is growing. A significant 44% of Australian women say that they have travelled solo in the past, compared to 33% in 2014. Unsurprisingly, the women of Australia, along with the females of the UK, rank among the most independent female travellers in the world. 81% of Australian females say they are planning to travel alone this year, with approximately half fitting in between two and four solo getaways in 2015. The top reported reason for female travel was the freedom of doing whatever they want, an answer that ranked around 56%. Click here to read the rest of the study's findings.

“Bleisure”, really? business and leisure

“Bleisure”, really? business and leisure | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it

HOW'S this for a terrible neologism: “bleisure”. It is a portmanteau of business and leisure, and is used to describe what some people claim is a new type of business traveller: one who fits in leisure travel while on the road.

In truth, this is hardly new. Skift, a travel website, has published something called “The Bleisure Report”, which you can read here. It is produced by the folks at Bridgestreet Global Hospitality, a company that provides serviced apartments—short-term rentals with housekeeping and utilities included. It conducted a survey to back up their “bleisure” claims, although there is no historic data from which to assemble a discernible trend.

In fact, there has long been a segment of the business travel population that has the means and professional flexibility to add leisure days onto business trips. Travel-related businesses, including Bridgestreet, are no doubt eager to attract these customers, who will spend more money per trip than those who like to keep their travel strictly professional. And terrible marketing neologisms such as “bleisure” can help companies think more carefully about how to attract certain subsets of customers.

174 million Chinese tourists are tipped to spend $264 billion by 2019. Are you ready?

174 million Chinese tourists are tipped to spend $264 billion by 2019. Are you ready? | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it

174 million Chinese tourists are tipped to spend $264 billion by 2019 compared with the 109 million who spent $164 billion in 2014, according to a new analysis by Bank of America Merrill Lynch. To put that in perspective, there were just 10 million Chinese outbound tourists in 2000.

 

Millennials, or 25- to 34- year olds, are expected to make up the bulk of Chinese tourists at 35% of the total, followed by 15- to 24- year olds accounting for around 27%.

 

Only about 5% of China's 1.3 billion populace are thought to hold passports, meaning the potential for outbound tourism is vast.
