Ryan

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. I have cruised on Pacific Dawn, Pacific Jewel, Pacific Pearl, Pacific Sun, Pacific Star, Sun Princess, Golden Princess, Pacific Princess, Royal...

Kirsty

Kirsty

Product and Operations 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!

Sarah

Sarah

New Zealand Manager

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.

Reservation Manager

Favourite ship: Radiance of the Seas
Favourite destination: New York City
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've been working in the travel industry for nearly 4 years now and I am thoroughly enjoying it! I love selling cruising in particular as I believe it is such a fantastic and stress-free way to travel. I have been lucky enough to cruise on ships such as Pacific Jewel, Pacific Aria, Diamond Princess, Radiance of the Seas and Queen Victoria and I have had such an enjoyable experience each time and really love what cruising has to offer!

Anthony

Anthony

Team Leader

Favourite ship: Golden Princess
Favourite destination: China
Best cruise tip: Stay on board when you can. If you visit a port which you may not necessarily need to see, use this day to explore the many facilities on the ship. Port days are always very quiet on the ship, no queues, no crowds, no fuss. You can also scoop up some big discounts at the spa and salon!

 

My family and I have been cruising for as long as I can remember. One of my earliest memories in life is throwing streamers off the side of a cruise ship as we sail away from port. The transition from leisure cruising to selling cruise was a very natural process. Prior to joining the travel industry, I cruised just about every other year. I have now been selling travel for about 7 years. In my experience, cruising is absolutely the best way to travel.
