If cruising is your preferred style of holiday, you are probably familiar with the South Pacific, Alaska, Mediterranean, South East Asia and the Caribbean. These are the primary cruising areas for Australians where the larger mainstream cruise companies have regular scheduled cruise itineraries. As always, cruising in these areas is a great holiday option, and often travel agencies with some cruising expertise can provide you with generalised advice on popular itineraries and ships. It is still true, however, that the best prices and quality advice can only come from agencies whose resources and staff expertise on world cruising are substantial.
At Travel Masters and The Travel Studio, our Consultants are trained to the highest possible level (Master Cruise Consultant), and the specialist cruising resources available are among the best in the nation. Cruise Consultants at Travel Masters and The Travel Studio have enjoyed personal cruising on more than 65 different ships in all the major cruising areas of the world.
When you want to look at cruise itineraries in exotic and unique destinations, our specialist cruise knowledge makes a world of difference. Away from the popular and more crowded cruise destinations there are numerous opportunities to enjoy the thrill of an exotic itinerary that takes you somewhere very special. Usually this is on a ship suited specifically to the area concerned, and often with specialist on-board staff to enhance the discovery nature of the experience.
In some cases, smaller ships have tailored their operation to provide incredibly rich holiday experiences in unique ways that maximise the special features of the ships. They choose not to compete with the big ships and big companies but instead have found a niche, and do this brilliantly with great client satisfaction. At Travel Masters and The Travel Studio we have many such options for you to consider in most parts of the world.
All wholesalers require deposits to secure your travel arrangements. In addition to this deposit, Travel Masters reserves the right to request an additional amount of up to $250 per person. All deposits are deducted from Final Payments and therefore are NOT an additional charge. Deposits are non-refundable from the time of payment and should be protected by Travel Insurance.
It is mandatory that the names of all travellers be exactly as per your passport or other identification as may be required. It is your responsibility to notify your consultant of the correct information as the time of making your booking. Any costs associated with name changes on any documents are your responsibility.
All Prices quoted are for payment by Cash and/or Cheque and are payable by the due date or before. Failure to do so could result in any reservations made being cancelled. Credit Card payments attract credit card fees which may vary from time to time; you will be advised of the fee at the time of payment. Payments are requested 14 days prior to the deadline given by the wholesaler or cruise line, so as to give us enough time for bank processing.
