Expert knowledge key to great customer experiences in burgeoning expedition cruise sector


DATE: 08 July 2016


Decades of experience and a wealth of insider knowledge will be harnessed to provide unforgettable travel experiences with the launch of a new online platform for global expedition cruises.

Expedition Cruise Specialists is the brainchild of industry pioneer Vicki Briggs, who has teamed up with expedition cruising expert Andrew Castles to fill a global gap in high-end online platforms for discerning cruise travellers. 

For 33 years, Vicki and her husband Captain Tony Briggs ran Australia’s expedition cruise line Coral Princess Cruises (now Coral Expeditions), while Andrew has managed expedition cruising programs for some of Australia’s premier travel companies over the past 15 years including APT, Coral Princess Cruises and most recently Coral Expeditions.

After months of research, planning and technology testing, the pair have just launched the new website

Cruises available on the site cover all seven continents, from Australia's amazing Kimberley to the breath-taking Polar regions, from the Galapagos Islands to the unforgettable Amazon rainforest.

The Expedition Cruise Specialists online platform also includes a range of unique user-friendly features, practical advice and tips to help consumers choose a small ship and expedition cruise that perfectly suits their travel wishes.

Exclusive offers, best prices, and access to loyalty incentives and specials will also be available on the new site.

“With so much information and so many cruising options to choose from, Andrew and I knew it was important to use our experience and insider knowledge to hand pick a collection of only the world's very best small ship and expedition cruises, “ Vicki said.

“Our new platform also provides unbiased advice to ensure travellers choose the best option for their travel dreams and plans. 

“We know what makes an expedition cruise great and we want to share that knowledge with the world.”

The team at Expedition Cruise Specialists is also working on a range of special group departures, escorted by Vicki, with more details to follow in coming months.
