Cruise Abroad director Peter Marshall, who has been retained by Transocean Tours to continue his representation of Marco Polo in Australia, has released a 2008/09 brochure with discounted fares in Australian dollars.
As previously reported, Marshall was appointed gsa for Orient Lines in Australia in 1995 when it was owned by Gerry Herrod.
He told Seatrade Insider today the 16-page full-colour ‘Experience Marco Polo’ brochure is currently being distributed to the agency network and will be available on his stand at the second annual Gold Coast Cruise Expo on September 7.
‘Marco Polo has never been so affordable,’ Marshall said. ‘Transocean has managed to keep costs down while, at the same time, maintaining the ambience that has made this classic ship so popular with Australian passengers.’
They are being encouraged to have a white Christmas on the 11-night Ushuaia/Ushuaia December 17 ‘Antarctic Christmas’ cruise that has been reduced from A$4,095 to A$3,170 (US$2,742) per person twin-share.
The fare for the 13-night ‘Antarctic New Year’ round cruise from Ushuaia on December 28 has been reduced from A$4,855 to A$4,125 (US$3,569).
The 850-passenger ship’s six-night ‘Springtime Fjordland’ round cruise from Tilbury on April 22 next year costs from A$185 (US$160) a night.
