Coral Princess Cruises appoints new Australasia PR consultant

Philip Engelberts of PEPR has taken on the Coral Princess Cruises account
PEPR (that stands for Philip Engelberts Public Relations and is pronounced 'pepper') has been named as the new public relations company for Cairns-based Coral Princess Cruises, founded in 1984 by Capt. Tony Briggs.

Briggs remains a shareholder and board member since Kallang Capital Holdings of Singapore became majority shareholder last December.

Paul Chacko, md of Kallang Capital Holdings, said it would build on Coral Princess Cruises’ 30 years of pioneering expedition cruises in Australia.

Chacko said Kallang will invest in upgrading the three ships—Coral Princess, Coral Princess II and Oceanic Discoverer—that cover the Great Barrier Reef, The Kimberley and Cape York and Arnhem Land, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and the South Pacific.

Engelberts will oversee the account, supported by accounts manager Antoneth Spaziani.

They will work with Coral Princess Cruises on major projects and new itinerary launches. 

Engelberts was representing Broome-based North Star Cruises until December last year. 

He is the Australasian public relations consultant for Holland America Line and his other clients include European Waterways and the South Australian Tourism Commission.
