FCTG opens first Cruiseabout store in five years

Perth is the home of the first of Flight Centre's new cruise-focused stores

THE first Cruiseabout store in Australia has opened, marking the brand’s national rebirth.

Flight Centre Travel Group’s first cruise-focused storefront has opened in Perth at Westfield Whitford City.

The Western Australia-based store will be followed by locations in the Gold Coast, Sydney, Melbourne, and Adelaide – the first shops to open nationally in five years.

Cruiseabout General Manager Brad Kennedy said the brand would be the only one of its kind with a national footprint offering both in-store and online travel services dedicated to the cruise industry.

“We’re doing something that’s unique here in Australia…our national retail network of specialist cruise experts, local call centre and online marketplace will give customers something they’ve been missing out on.

“With record cruising numbers globally and the average age of cruisers decreasing, the pipeline of future cruisers is strong.

“We want to help new and experienced cruisers alike have the best experience by providing expert advice and offering industry leading rates and exclusive experiences to Cruiseabout customers.”
