Who is Ecruising?
Brett started Ecruising in January 2000 and has built the company from the ground
up. Originally formed with a staff of just two, the ecruising group of companies
now consists of vertically integrated wholesale and retail divisions employing over
20 people (click here to meet our Australian team).
Ecruising pioneered the way Australian consumers purchase a cruise holiday by opening
up the distribution channels and allowing both agents and consumers alike to book
a cruise holiday at their convenience, 24 hours a day, giving them access to competitive
packages. Ecruising has been able to do this through its agreements with over 33
cruise lines, 21 airlines, ground operators and over 224 hotels around the world,
we leverage these relationships and create unique cruise packages that deliver seamless
Over the past 6 years, Ecruising has developed unique high end tours combining the
highest level of experiences for the discerning traveller. Past tours include chartering
the Orion Expedition ship in May 2009 from Broome to Darwin for 100 people; this
included helicopter experiences to remote areas, visiting ports that are not normally
accessible, chartering planes to the Bungle Bungles (view
some of the videos at our ECTV station). In 2011, Ecruising chartered a
luxury ship for 48 passengers to cruise the Galapagos Islands, this was combined
with a land program to Peru and Easter Island (view
Galapagos video's here).
For the past 5 years, Ecruising has taken groups to Africa combined with Queen Mary
2, which also included chartering a 737-800 from Kenya Airways and taking out game
lodges exclusively for Ecruising guests (view Africa
and others here).
Ecruising continues to lead the way in technology development. Consumers now have
the ability to book all the major cruise lines online themselves in less than 2
minutes 24 hours a day at very competitive pricing. Try it and you'll never book
a cruise holiday any other way! See our website under Book Online for details.
