EasyCruise Makes a Play for Agents

Low-cost cruise enterprise works with travel agents on trial basis during initial cruises

EasyCruise, the low-cost cruise enterprise that’s modeled after the no-frills success of its sister company EasyJet, will work with travel agents on a trial basis during its initial cruises next spring.

The first six cruises will depart from Singapore, where EasyCruise’s ship, the EasyCruise 1 (a former Renaissance Cruises vessel), is undergoing renovations.

The EasyCruise 1 will reposition to Europe in April and will spend the bulk of its time offering Mediterranean cruises to a European customer base. But the company hinted that Singapore could become the ship’s winter home.
