7. The research conducted in regard to reasons for taking a cruise can clearly be seen in Exhibit 9. This is a survey type of primary quantitative research, which is categorized into age (18-55+) and income (less than $50k to over $100k+ per year). The survey inputs data from different age groups and income brackets to average out for an overall percentage per question. The data collected displays that there isn't much variance in the answers of the different income brackets, but there is some variance in the last 3 survey questions for the age group, most probably due to the questions being age sensitive/related. Furthermore, one striking finding highlights that the overall answer percentage between the two surveys (by age versus by income) displays exactly similar results for each question. 8.

7.2 days, which means that the passenger can explore many different cities within a reasonable amount of time. It is also easier to plan and arrange when there is only one specific route. Furthermore, most cruise lines are inclusive of hospitality, meals, and entertainment so passengers will be amused and taken care at all times throughout the trip. Imagine travelling to a foreign country and have to worry about where to stay and what to eat whereas on cruise line vacations everything has been organized.
