Traveling is exciting

Two thirds of people find it "exciting" traveling to a new destination.

A study by Celebrity Cruises found that 59 per cent of people were excited by the idea of visiting somewhere they hadn't before.

When it comes to adventure seeking, a third of British people (31 per cent) only do something adventurous once a year or even less, whilst nine per cent of people admit that they never look for adventure at all. However, for seven per cent of Brits, they like to aim to go on an adventure every single day. The study also found that millennials were more of the thrill seekers compared to the baby boomers, who were named the least adventurous as a whole.

The release of the Adventure Index comes as Ben Fogle launches his newly expanded Great Adventures. This is a collection of excursions that are designed to give Celebrity Cruises' guests a chance to experience a place's culture and history when they touch down in a port for the day.

This includes Ocean Yacht Racing in Antigua, a hike up Mount Liamuiga Volcano in St. Kitts and a special kayak adventure at Icy Strait Point in Alaska.

Ben Fogle, Celebrity Cruises' Global Destination Ambassador, said: "It's great to see that Brits still want to get out, see the world and experience a real adventure - despite the tyranny of technology! I want the excursions I've created for Celebrity Cruises to inspire them to continue sharing my passion for adventure - and to get their dopamine hits from daring to do something different."
