Nothing beats Creative Cruising

August 28, 2014 Cruise No Comments Email Email

Following the recent alignment of Creative Cruising to Creative Holidays, the cruise wholesaler is capitalising on record demand for cruising (overall cruise growth in Australia increased by 20 percent in 2013) by providing the industry with a leading full-service solution to cater to ever-growing demand.

The evolved Creative Cruising business brings the ease and speed that travel agents have been calling for via an extensive, evolved inventory offering and exceptional service delivery.

James Gaskell, Managing Director, Creative Holidays said: “Australians are cruising in greater numbers than ever before – CLIA reports Australians are the fifth largest source market globally for cruising. A great number of those trips are more complex bookings, combining cruise with pre and post touring so a key objective for us has been to make it easier and more efficient for agents to book cruise, air and land all with one call.

“While there were once ‘cruise specialists’, the boom of cruising as a mainstream travel preference – 3.6 percent of the Australian population cruised in 2013 – means that all agents need to be up to speed with the ever-expanding industry. Homeport cruising continues to rise as does offshore fly and cruise with considerable development to Europe, Asia, America and the Caribbean. More than ever, agents are faced with complex combination bookings and we’re facilitating this by working hard to deliver a simple and efficient booking process and with our experienced full-service, high-touch team on call ready to help”.

Creative Cruising is ensuring that product offering is catering to emerging markets with increased ocean, river and tall ship options. Understanding that expertise is best built with first-hand experience, the wholesaler is hosting the inaugural Creative Cruising famil in the Caribbean next month.
