“My Cruise Excursion” The leading German booking platform for cruise shore excursions, goes on tour in the USA
The leading independent platform for shore excursions in the German- speaking market ”My Cruise Excursion” launched its service in the USA last year. The booking platform offers shore excursions to passengers of any cruise line and pursues the strategy of a better value for money.
In order to avoid over-crowding and less enjoyable experiences the excursions are designed for small groups of cruise passengers that provide a quality and relaxed atmosphere – and all this at unbeatable prices. “My Cruise Excursion” markets their service via their website and in cooperation with travel agent partners.
The parent company was founded in 2016 by Florian Berthold, who was previously Vice president of Aida Cruises, the leading cruise line in Germany.
As the Cruise ships get bigger and so do the sizes of the groups touring the local towns and ports, Florian saw the opportunity to create a better alternative for cruise guests to explore ashore.
”With “My Cruise Excursion”, passengers will get the special service they desire and that better fits the high level of service they enjoy while on board. We follow the simple but special principle of creating amazing memories and serve our customers with an all-round care free package and provide excursions to be remembered,” tells Richard Muggeridge, Country Manager USA at “My Cruise Excursion”.
With a cruise experienced team ”My Cruise Excursion” understand the passenger’s requirements and aims at becoming the worldwide leading provider in this segment. On the website my-cruise- excursion.com customers can book various excursions from regular sightseeing tours to extraordinary adventures like helicopter flights or jeep safaris. Alternatively, customers can visit their local travel agent to book their shore excursions.
“My Cruise Excursion” has already signed the first partners in the USA, who benefit from attractive sales commissions.
With the New range of VIP excursions just launched the company continues to go from strength to strength in the USA. The VIP excursions were launched in response to the high demand in the USA for group excursions designed around the clients needs. With extra little perks like champagne, local foods and exclusive locations, these VIP excursions are in high demand and come with the high quality customer to match.
