Leading travel company, The Goldman Group, has acquired The Cruise Centre in Brisbane, as the company enters into the Queensland travel market, and further strengthens its expertise and offering in the growing cruise space across Australia.

Celebrating 35 years in the travel business in 2018, awarded top Virtuoso agency in Australia and New Zealand for the past three years, as well as ‘Best Corporate Agency – Multi Location’ in 2017 at the National Travel Industry Awards, The Goldman Group seeks to attract and partner with the best in the business. Widely respected as one of Australia’s leading boutique cruise agencies, The Cruise Centre is acclaimed for its team of voyage specialists, all with extensive first-hand cruising expertise across a range of vessels to both popular and far flung destinations around the globe.

Tom Goldman OAM, Executive Chairman of Goldman Group, said: “With Australia currently the fifth largest source market for cruises globally[1], building upon our cruise business was a priority for the group this year, alongside increased marketing and sales activity across all our travel businesses. This acquisition will position us as a major player in the premium and luxury cruising space, adding in-depth expertise and invaluable first-hand cruising experience of The Cruise Centre’s consultants.

“Currently based in Brisbane, we’re looking forward to rolling out The Cruise Centre brand in both Victoria and New South Wales in the near future, and to servicing and growing our cruise clientele nationwide. Goldman clients will benefit from the extensive personal cruising experience of The Cruise Centre’s advisors, with the added benefit of the Goldman Group teams’ worldwide destination and luxury travel knowledge,” Mr Goldman added.

The acquisition brings an additional eight staff members to The Goldman Group, builds on the company’s steady growth over recent years, and firms its position as one of Australia’s leading travel companies.

Cruise industry stalwart, Elizabeth Clarke, currently Joint Managing Director at The Cruise Centre, will be joining Goldman to ensure a seamless transition of the business from Savenio.

“The Cruise Centre’s passion for travelling by sea is infectious, and we’re always on hand to share inside tips on the latest exotic ports, shore excursions and immersive cultural experiences with both novice and repeat cruise customers,” said Elizabeth Clarke.
