Interview with Revelex CEO David Goodis
Searches Are Up
Goodis explained that bookings were down, obviously, as it will be another couple of months until cruise lines return to business. Despite not having bookings, there was still valuable data for him to analyze.
“I’m taking a look at what’s still taking place. We’re seeing lots of searching going on, especially for 2021 and we’re seeing a lot of impactful data that’s telling me people are still looking, they’re curious, the content is interesting to them and they’re planning their trips now” Goodis said.
People may not feel comfortable booking at the moment since there’s so much unknown in the industry, but they’re looking long and hard for their cruise vacations in the coming years when things are back to normal.
