Cruiseabout Reaches New Heights

Posted January 30th, 2013

Cruiseabout, New Zealand’s dedicated cruise retailer, is up for an array of awards at the prestigious International Cruise Council Australasia (ICCA) 2012 Cruise Industry Awards, with five finalists in three different categories including Cruise Agency of the Year, Cruise Consultant of the Year and Rising Star.

Cruiseabout brand leader, Jessica Allan, is ecstatic with the nominations and says that it’s fantastic to be recognised by the awards as Cruiseabout continues to grow throughout New Zealand.

“This highlights the trust that the New Zealand cruising industry has for the Cruiseabout brand. Cruiseabout has grown rapidly over the past two years and it’s great to know that the knowledge and awareness of the brand has grown as well.

“It’s fantastic to have our hard work recognised by these prestigious awards. In 2011, we were nominated for one award and to have five nominations just one year later is fantastic.

“The demand for cruising from Kiwis continues to grow and I’m very proud to be part of one of New Zealand’s leading cruise retailers.”
