Cruise­watch in Aus

Travel Daily - - News -

CRUISE­WATCH has launched in Aus­tralia, with the Ger­man web­site de­scrib­ing it­self as the “first cruise metasearch­er” in the coun­try.

The plat­form in­forms cruis­ers of the best time to book, and it plans to co­op­er­ate with busi­ness part­ners to op­ti­mise and im­ple­ment its plat­form in more coun­tries, hav­ing also been in the United States for more than four years.

Cruise­watch claims to of­fer more than 10,000 trips on 25 cruise lines, how­ever GlobeNet Travel owner Dan Rus­sell pon­dered how con­sumers would en­gage with the plat­form’s lack of hu­man el­e­ment.

“Aus­tralian con­sumers would have to de­cide if they’re com­fort­able book­ing their cruise hol­i­day with some­one on the other side of the planet, rather than a local ac­cred­ited cruise agency with local con­sul­tants who care,” Rus­sell told TD.
