Australian travellers have a new online avenue to plan and book a cruise holiday, following Expedia’s integration of cruise products onto its Australian site.
The online agency added 30 cruise liners to its product listing this week, including P&O, Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Princess and Captain Cook Cruises.
Expedia also launched a cruise holiday hotline, which connects travellers to an Australian cruising expert to help plan, compare and book over the phone.
As the second highest cruise market with three percent of Australians cruising every year, Expedia Australia managing director Georg Ruebensal described Australians as “enthusiastic cruisers” and expects the content to offer travellers a “one-stop cruise holiday booking experience”.
According to an International Cruise Council Australia 2012 Cruise Industry Report, the South Pacific is the most popular cruise destination for Australians, followed by the Australian Coast and New Zealand.
