Cruisewatch in Aus
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.
