Event organizer and Ucango Travel & Cruise Managing Director Dave Hulsman said they success of the last three events just shows how popular cruising has become.

"It has been interesting to watch the industry evolve over the past 5 years," Mr Hulsman said. "Not only do we have a large market of cruisers heading overseas for cruise options but each year we see more and more vessels coming out to our waters which is opening the market up to more and more demographics."

"Cruising amongst Australians has grown exponentially over the past decade and passenger number in Australia alone are expected to double in the next four years.

 "This event is a great opportunity for anyone, whether they've cruised before or not, to find out what options are available and perhaps save a buck or two."
