New Cruise Line Portuscale Cruises Partners With Discover The World

May 22, 2014 Appointments No Comments Email Email

Portuscale Cruises, a recently launched cruise line based in Portugal, has partnered with Discover the World to provide sales and marketing support in Australia and New Zealand, as well as Brazil, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, and Singapore for its cruises.

M-V FunchalRui Alegre, Chairman and CEO of Portuscale Cruises said, “We were looking for a partner to assist with our sales and marketing activity, and to handle our reservations, especially in Australia where we will have a ship based during the 2015 summer cruise season for a number of cruises, and Discover the World was highly recommended to us. We also decided to have Discover provide sales in New Zealand.  Although our focus was on Australia and New Zealand, Discover suggested other sales opportunities in Brazil, because of its ties to Portugal, and Asia to sell our seasonal and Mediterranean cruises.”

Jenny Adams, CEO of Discover the World said, “Portuscale Cruises offers “small but beautiful” cruises aboard its classic ship, the M/V Funchal, and unique destination focused itineraries, a variety of shore excursions taking in the history and culture of the destination. With a majority of Portuguese crew specially trained, guests will feel welcomed as soon as they step aboard the M/V Funchal, and they will discover the gastronomy offerings and encounter an excellent atmosphere. Our sales strategy will incorporate not only the destinations for their cruises, but these significant guest benefits when selecting Portuscale Cruises.”

In 2014, Portuscale Cruises is offering voyages onboard the M/V Funchal to Morocco, the Canary Islands, Azores, Portugal, Italy, Malta, France and Norway to name but a few of the destinations passengers can experience. And in January 2015, M/V Funchal will make her way south to Australia from Barcelona on a 45 day voyage, calling at ports rarely offered by mainstream cruise companies. Whilst in Australia, M/V Funchal will do 4, 6 and 8 day cruises in Australian waters from Newcastle and Geelong, before making her way north on a 57 day voyage to Europe which will include the Gallipoli centenary anniversary.
