Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (PRWEB) November 20, 2014
A first in the travel industry, CruiseOne® and Cruises Inc.® announced the launch of a video library of travel vlogs, blogs that are primarily video content. With 26 travel videos already created and 35 expected to be completed by year-end, these vlogs provide consumers a first-person look at what it’s like to stay at a resort or travel on a cruise by showcasing unique destinations, various cruise lines and different experiences available on land and at sea, as well as additional background information and insider tips.
“These videos are a game-changer in the travel industry and are unlike anything that already exists,” said Rosemarie Reed, vice president of marketing for CruiseOne and Cruises Inc. “We recognize the increased role video plays when consumers are researching vacations and these vlogs will be a crucial aspect of the decision-making process.”
Google studies show that online travel video usage is increasing approximately 55 percent, and that these videos are influential in the early stages of the travel planning process including when consumers are thinking about taking a trip and when choosing a destination. According to the same study, 90 percent of travelers take action after viewing an online travel video. The CruiseOne and Cruises Inc. videos drive emotion and create a connection with the viewer by being fun and engaging.
