Online cruise pioneer, Ecruising, has announced the launch of its new elite travel division, Latitude 33.
In response to high demand, the online cruise operator has created a dedicated high-end cruise and land tours offering unique, luxury experiences for travellers who seek to experience a different level of travel.
Speaking at the launch, Ecruising and Latitude 33 founder and chairman, Brett Dudley, said: “Ecruising’s cruise tours grew at such a speed that it was necessary to create a company dedicated to these immersive high–end packages and build a team of dedicated handpicked travel professionals who, with their extensive knowledge, will offer a concierge style of service to our Latitude 33 customers”.
The experiential luxury tour company will focus on amazing experiences, superior luxury, and effortless world-wide travel, taking travellers to some of the most remote and exotic places in the world, with some trips enjoying exclusive use of small resorts, and chartering private jets and luxury ships. Each tour is always accompanied by knowledgeable local guides, as well as fully escorted by an experienced Latitude 33 tour host.
Furthermore, the exclusive “Directors Selection” offers a range of tours personally developed and hosted by Mr Dudley, with the inaugural tour, “Seven Wonders of South Africa”, kicking off in January 2017. The 32-night tour will include the private charter of planes and a luxury rail journey on Rovos Rail, private use of Phinda Mountain Lodge, an exclusive golf program, and a 16-night cruise from Cape Town back to Australia on-board the famous Queen Mary 2.
The name, Latitude 33, encompasses the co-ordinates of Mr Dudley’s three favourite cities, Sydney, Cape Town and Santiago, which are all 33 degrees south of the Equator, and the latitude stretching across many different cultures and time zones.
