Carnival Australia launches CruiseAir packages

Carnival Cruise Lines has introduced CruiseAir packages in Australia following an increase in inter-State bookings for Carnival Spirit and Carnival Legend’s extended season in Sydney, as well as inaugural Hawaii/Singapore float/fly options.

Carnival Spirit departs Sydney on August 1, 2015, for Singapore where she will enter dry-dock. On August 30 she will make the return voyage to Sydney.

The company is also offering Carnival Legend’s 18-day repositioning voyage from Sydney to Honolulu on April 20, 2015.

There will be an 18-day repositioning voyage from Honolulu to Sydney on September 26, 2015, when Carnival Legend returns to Australia for a second 2015-16 season.

Carnival Cruise Lines’ vp Australia, Jennifer Vandekreeke, said CruiseAir wil make it easy for agents to book cruises and flights from 63 cities across Australia and New Zealand.

‘CruiseAir is a one-stop shop which offers a variety of benefits for agents and their clients,’ Vandekreeke said.

‘With Cruise-Air, guests can choose their airline, class and seat, with the system providing agents with side-by-side pricing options for flexible and restricted fares. If offers immediate flight confirmations and all packages include one piece of check-in baggage per person.’

Vandekreeke said CruiseAir also has ‘next port’ protection.

‘This means that if there is a flight delay or service disruption we’ll get guests to their next appropriate port of call,’ she said.

‘Plus it offers post-cruise protection. If a cruise is late into port and a guest misses the return flight we’ll work with the airline to rebook the flight and ensure our guest gets home.’
