Where did POSH originate?
Where did POSH originate?

This colloquialism for 'grand', 'swell' or 'first-rate' is said to have originated in the old days of constant steamship travel between England & India. Passengers travelling by the P&O (Peninsular & Oriental) would, at some cost, book their return passage with the arrangement 'Port Out, Starboard Homeward', thus ensuring cabins on the cooler side of the ship, as it was usually unbearably hot when crossing the Indian Ocean. Passengers would book 'POSH' accordingly, and 'POSH' soon came to be applied to a first-class passenger who could afford this luxury.


  1. How do I get an ecruising.travel lanyard?
    We understand many cruise fanatics may already have their favourite cruise lanyards. However, if you would like to receive our personalised ecruising.travel lanyard, call us and we’ll mail one out to you. Valid for one per guest.
  2. How do I receive invitations to ship inspections and POSH Club events?
    All events are subject to availability and extremely limited. If you are not subscribed to receive our newsletter, you most likely won’t receive our invitation for ship inspections or exclusive POSH Club events. All events are first in first serve. Platinum POSH Club members will have 24-hour priority access.
  3. Can I get speciality dining onboard any cruise?
    We will do our very best to arrange this dining experience for you onboard, however in the unlikely event the cruise line does not have the option to pre-reserve specialty dining, we will endeavour to have it arranged on your next future booking with ecruising.travel. Minimum spend of $3,000 per person per booking will be eligible.
  4. How do I get up to AUD 50.00 discount per booking?
    In addition to fabulous cruise deals and exclusive ecruising.travel offers, we will provide up to AUD $50.00 additional savings towards your booking. Minimum spend of $3,000 per person per booking will be eligible.
  5. How do I get up to 5% savings per booking?
    Receive up to 5% off your cruise booking in addition to current cruise line offers. To take advantage of this great offer, simply book an international cruise holiday with a minimum spending of $10,000 per person per booking. Not combinable with ecruising.travel's AUD $50 discount stated on point 4. Some exclusive ecruising.travel packages are excluded. Discount is applied to package value less any tax portion. Not applicable to any world cruise or world cruise segments. Ask your consultant for full details.
  6. How do I maintain my POSH Club status?
    Lifetime recognition may be awarded to members. There are four membership tiers in the POSH Club. The entry tier is Bronze. Members may progress to the higher tiers - Silver, Gold, Platinum by simply doing what they love – cruising!

    While your status is reset at the start of each new year, we keep a record of all completed cruises since you’ve first booked with ecruising.travel. To maintain your status book one cruise holiday per calendar year with a minimum spend of $3,000 per person per booking. Otherwise, your membership level will automatically drop back to your prior status with a lifetime status. It’s our way of thanking you for your loyalty over the years.
