Holidays unveiled new cruising partners to its agents yesterday, bringing the total number of cruise lines the wholesaler sells to a baker’s dozen. Their cruise expansion comes just shy of tomorrow’s official 2011 cruising season launch, and is tipped to be a big earner for agents yet again with competitive commissions and public demand.“Cruising is no longer for the over fed, newlywed or nearly dead,” Qantas Holidays Marketing Manager, Angie Howes joked with the group. “This is a chance to see the world from the sea,” she said. Attending agents were also eligible to earn 500 trip points, plus went in the draw to win great prizes including a Royal Caribbean International cruise. “We’ve simplified the process, and agents can now bundle bookings with airfares, hotels through either Qantas Holidays or Viva! Holidays.  We are continually looking to add new cruise product to our portfolio, and also have dedicated cruise consultants,” Ms Howes said.The entire cruise portfolio now includes, APT River Cruising, Blue Lagoon, Captain Cook Domestic, Captain Cook Fiji, Coral Princess, Royal Caribbean International, Azamara Club Cruises, Cunard Line, North Star Cruises, Orion, Princess Cruises, Star Cruises and Celebrity Cruises.
