Costa Cruises and Central Holidays announced a new partnership to develop a new vacation packages brand: Costa Cruise Tours. The new alliance features Central Holidays as the operator of Costa Cruise Tours packages that include air, land and Costa Cruises’ cruise arrangements to destinations throughout Europe departing from the following ports of call: Civitavecchia, Savona, Marseille, and Barcelona.
Our shared goal in Costa Cruise Tours is to create the go-to option for European cruise and land packages that inspires prospective cruisers to make the most of their vacations by combining a Costa Cruises sailing with air and pre-cruise land arrangements.
Our goal is to meet with industry leaders, prospective partners and clients and continue building new business in line with our strategic growth goals. With successful meetings and negotiations at WTM, we remain right on track for achieving our objectives. Our expansion into new travel destinations continues on course with novel, in-demand new destinations being introduced by our travel brands as well as an extensive breadth of experience-focused itineraries being unveiled for 2015. We were simply thrilled to have been able to showcase it all at WTM.
The acquisition of Mosaic Holidays is the next strategic step in SGI’s goals for growth. We have been looking for the right partner with the right fit for some time now to enable Mosaic to expand its luxury tailor-made portfolio and invest in our partnerships with key travel agents. This investment provides an exciting opportunity to expand the company and develop into new and exciting destinations.
SGI’s expansion in the UK will enable our family of brands to provide more in-depth destination expertise and hands-on in-country support throughout the region, positioning us ideally to present an even greater array of customized travel opportunities and exclusive experiential offerings that today’s travelers are yearning for.
