A brand new cruising website has officially launched, enabling users to book cruises completely online.
People using the site can even go as far as picking the exact cabin they’ll be staying in while onboard the ship, thanks to new technology that’s been made available through the site.
The site has been designed and created by the founders of one of the UK’s leading online travel agencies, sunshine.co.uk.
The site, bonvoyage.co.uk, has been in development for a couple of years, while the founders waited for the technology to be made available by cruise operators to allow people to book online.
Bonvoyage.co.uk brings something new and fresh to the cruise booking industry, where every cruise available on the website is bookable online and users will be able to see a complete layout of the liner they would be cruising on and they can select the exact cabin in which they wish to stay.
Features on the site will include videos of the ships, ports, shore excursions and more, while users will also be able to add on pre and post stay hotels to allow them to easily extend their cruise holidays.
Berlitz star ratings will also be included on-site.
Cruises from all major liners will be featured on the site for people to view and book, initially with P&O Cruises and Cunard with the likes of Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises, MCS Cruises and others expected to be added in the near future.
Targeted at both experienced cruisers and those wanting to embark on a cruise for the first time, bonvoyage.co.uk will act as a hub for anyone wanting to find out more and discover how to book.
Itineraries and a map showing all destinations the cruise liners travel to are made available to site visitors and the booking process is quick and easy.
The cruise site is the latest offering from the founders of the UK’s fastest growing online independent travel agent www.sunshine.co.uk who also own a number of other websites such as airporttransfers.co.uk, familyholidays.co.uk and tenerife.co.uk.
Chris Brown, co-founder of bonvoyage.co.uk, spoke about the launch: “The launch of bonvoyage.co.uk has been a long time coming.
“The site has been in development for some time, but we had to wait for some of the technology to be made available by the cruise operators.
“Allowing users to view a deck plan and click on the cabin they want to stay in is something we’re really excited about and a feature we hope will go down well.
“Cruises aren’t just for the older generation as some people tend to wrongly believe and we really want to encourage younger groups of people to consider a cruise as an alternative holiday too.
“We’re looking forward to seeing how people respond to the site and how it performs in the early stages. We’ll be offering the same high level of customer service as we do with sunshine.co.uk, as looking after our customers if our number one priority.”
