Team Leader

Favourite ship: Celebrity Cruises
Favourite destination: Croatia/New York
Best cruise tip: Cruises are a great way to meet new people, so make sure you sit at a large table, even if you have 'Anytime Dining' and join in on the fun.

 

I have been working in the Cruise/ Travel Industry for almost 10 years now. I worked in the UK on and off for 4 years, as well as Australia and New Zealand. I have been able to go on many International ships and sell some amazing Cruise holiday packages to destinations such as Alaska, Caribbean and the Mediterranean. Apart from my cruise experience I have also traveled around Europe, United States, New Zealand, Australia, South Pacific and Asia. I have enjoyed...

Sarah

Team Leader

Favourite ship: Queen Mary 2
Favourite destination: Los Angeles and Las Vegas
Best cruise tip: Although cruising is a cashless society it is always a good idea to take some small amounts of local currencies to make purchases when you are ashore.

 

I love cruising! It is a great way to see the world and make new friends. I have travelled to Western, Southern and Eastern Caribbean, the Mediterranean, South Pacific, New Zealand and Mexico. All of them have been fantastic trips. I enjoy being able to unpack once, being surrounded by friendly staff from all over the world and being able to see several destinations in one trip.

Sam

Sam

Product and Groups Manager

Favourite ship: Queen Mary 2
Favourite destination: Tahiti and Croatia
Best cruise tip: Try to check out and book some of your shore excursions before you leave. There's something to suit everyone from tasting the local cuisine to high adrenalin activities or if relaxing on a beach sounds more like your cup of tea then there's always that option for you too! Shore excursions are usually reserved by 'First in, First Served' so book early to avoid missing a spot.

 

I have been working in the travel industry for 8+ years with the majority of this time selling cruises to every corner of the world! I have travelled to the South Pacific, Australia, NZ, Canada, Indonesia and most recently through Europe. I've been lucky enough to travel on P&O (past and present ships), Princess, Cunard, Royal Caribbean & Carnival Cruises with the desire to do more.

Kirsty

Kirsty

Manager

Favourite ship: Celebrity Solstice
Favourite destination: Croatia & Turkey
Best cruise tip: Check out which ports are famous for what souvenir so you don't purchase everything at the first port of call. Leave plenty of room in your suitcase for your shopping, or pack a carry bag to load with your purchases. The extra bag is also handy for any items you need to "declare" so you don't have to open your main suitcase!

 

I have worked in travel since 2003 after living abroad in New York, Calgary and London. I took 5 months off in 2009 to travel around Africa, Spain, Turkey and Croatia. Cruising is an awesome way to travel and I love seeing the growth as more and more Australians & Kiwis get to experience the wonder of "unpacking once" and not lifting a finger for the whole holiday!

Casey

Casey

Junior Cruise Consultant (Groups Division)

Favourite ship:
Favourite destination: Los Angeles
Best cruise tip: Make sure you check out shore tours provided by the cruise lines. These tours are a great way to make the most of the time you have at each port without running the risk of not getting back to the ship on time!

 

New to the travel industry this year.. excited to be working in cruise! I love to travel and have enjoyed travelling far from home to America where I traveled to California and Minnesota as well a little closer to home on my trip to Australia where I visited Gold Coast and Sydney. It was on this trip to Australia when I realized travel would be an awesome industry for me to get into. I cant wait to help others plan to see the world in what I think is the most...

I have had a great passion for the travel and tourism industry ​growing up, always wanting to travel and experience new places and big adventures. During my studies in Travel and Tourism I acquired a taste for the Cruise Industry and set as a goal of mine to one day become a part of. The idea of being on a cruise travelling to different destinations in one trip alone is fantastic, the fun you can have along the way is endless! I have traveled throughout all of...

Ryan

General Manager

Favourite ship: Pacific Princess
Favourite destination: Mazatlan, Mexico
Best cruise tip: Your cabin steward is the most important crew member on the cruise. Look after them, and they will help make your cruise a very memorable experience.

 

I was employed as the District Sales Manager for Carnival Australia, based in NZ, before setting up Cruises Online, now Cruise Republic, (the owners of this website) in 2008. I am passionate about cruising and have enjoyed many voyages to and around destinations such as Alaska, Mexico, South Pacific and New Zealand.

Cruise Support Specialist

Favourite ship: Celebrity Solstice
Favourite destination: Tokyo
Best cruise tip: Order everything! With so much food to choose from, it can be a great opportunity to try things that you ordinarily wouldn't choose from a menu. As so much of it is included in your ticket - what have you got to lose?

 

I'm new to the cruise industry, but travel is definitely something close to my heart! Last year I spent time in the UK, as well as Tokyo, Paris and Shanghai, but I still have a long list of places I'd like to visit. Cruising is the perfect way to make your journey between destinations as memorable and enjoyable as the time you spend in new cities, and I'm looking forward to helping you create the perfect trip.

Cruise Specialist

Favourite ship: Celebrity Solstice
Favourite destination: NYC
Best cruise tip: If possible, fly in the day before the cruise departs to extend your holiday and avoid any potential flight delays/traffic that may cause any necessary stress on embarkation day.

 

I decided to make the move into the travel industry after catching the travel bug following two trips to Europe and one to the USA and was working as a retail travel agent for the past 2 years before moving into cruising! I have mainly done land holidays in past, however I believe cruises are the perfect mix of doing as much or as little as you like while you sail!

Jimmy

Cruise Specialist

Favourite ship: Carnival Victory
Favourite destination: Bahamas
Best cruise tip: Cabins as close to the centre of the ship are the way to go.

 

I love to travel and have journeyed throughout most of the world. Returning to New Zealand after several years of traveling and cruising, I began employment in the travel industry. I have recently made the move in to cruising as I think its a fantastic way to see the world and explore countries you have never been to before. Everything is taken care of when you're on a cruise. Its an awesome way to meet people and the best value for money holiday so why wouldn't...

Best cruise tip: Take time to explore on board as there are so many exciting things to see and do while at sea.

 

I got into the travel industry straight after university, working for Qantas Airways Ltd. Then I decided to see the world myself and travelled to Tahiti, Canada and South Africa. I am very passionate about travel and I think cruising is a great way to see a number of different destinations.

Cruise Specialist

Favourite ship: Queen Mary 2
Favourite destination: Greece
Best cruise tip: Make sure to book early if you’re wanting to take the family away over the school holidays – you don’t want to miss out and the ships fill up fast!

 

I made the move to the cruising industry after completing my studies in Travel & Tourism. I always loved the idea of Cruising as you get to see so many different places and only have to unpack once! I have travelled throughout New Zealand, Australia and the beautiful South Pacific Islands.

Amy

Favourite ship: Pacific Pearl
Favourite destination: Thailand
Best cruise tip: If you plan on spending any down time in your room away from the cruising social scene, book a balcony cabin and take in the ocean views!

Cruise Specialist

Favourite ship: Carnival Legend
Favourite destination: Germany / Croatia
Best cruise tip: Pre-book Drinks Packages and Shore Tours when possible to make the most of your enjoyment onboard.

 

I've been involved in the travel industry for 3 years now, after catching the travel bug while I was overseas in Europe I decided this was the industry I was most passionate about and wanted to focus on. After doing a lot of cruises for my customers I decided this was an area I wanted to focus on as I think it's a great way to travel and see a number of different destinations and cultures in one trip and with only having to unpack just ONCE! In my travels I have...

Favourite ship: Celebrity Solstice
Favourite destination: Japan

My 4 years experience as a retail travel agent has given me the opportunity to see the world; mostly by air. Now entering into the exciting and rapidly expanding world of cruising, I am looking forward to experiencing travel from a different perspective!

Jordan

Jordan

Cruise Specialist

Favourite ship: Celebrity Solstice
Favourite destination: Fiji
Best cruise tip: Book on decks 6-8 as close as you can to the centre of the boat and pay the little bit extra for a balcony..worth it every time :)

 

I have been in the travel industry now for over 5 years after stints living abroad in England, Spain, Mexico and Argentina. I took 10 months over 2009/2010 to fulfil a life-long dream and travelled throughout South America. Cruising is a great way to travel with family, a group of friends or your partner for a relaxing getaway and the best thing I like about it is I only have to unpack once and I still get to see all these amazing places!!

Amy Mc

Amy Mc

Cruise Specialist

Favourite ship: Crown Princess
Favourite destination: Venice
Best cruise tip: Get to know the crew onboard your ship especially the Bar Staff. They are the people who know all the best places to visit in the ports of call and they will have lots of handy hints to help you spend your time wisely.

 

I love to travel and have been lucky enough to see most of the world during 12 years working for Princess Cruises as Food and Beverage Manager. I have a passion for cruising and believe its the best way to go on holiday as you only need to unpack once and you can do as much or as little as you like with your time onboard.

Best cruise tip:

 

Struck with an incurable case of wanderlust many years ago, I have traveled all over the globe determined to see and experience it all. Highlights are an African safari and a Great Barrier Reef diving adventure. From beach to mountains, I love it all! Next to cross of off my list, Antarctica - the last and coldest continent for me to experience. Until then, I’m more than happy exploring the beauty and splendour that is the South Pacific. Inspiring others to...
