A new cruise website has been launched in the UK claiming to offer the first independent price comparison service in the fast-growing sector.
Searches on Cruisecompare.co.uk provide links to operators' and agents' websites and the site claims to have around 10,000 cruises on sale at any one time. It offers live pricing and displays a range of prices for each cruise related to cabin grades.
Visitors can search for their ideal cruise based on provider, cost, location or duration and the site claims to be offering cruise from as little as £49 to £49,000.
All the main cruise operators feature on the site including P&O Cruises, Royal Caribbean, Princess Cruises and Celebrity Cruises, as well as leading retailer like cruise118.co.uk, Iglu Cruising and Ideal Cruising.
Danielle Fear, the managing director, said: "This is a really exciting time for everyone involved in the launch of CruiseCompare.co.uk.
“We have a great team working on the site and we plan to become the leading cruise website for research and bookings, as well as one of the UK’s top 25 travel websites in the UK.
“The site is completely impartial, and offers cruises from all major cruise providers, allowing users to find the best possible deal for them.
"CruiseCompare.co.uk is a unique service, and the concept is based on popular and successful business models used by insurance providers, mobile phone providers and financial services.
“Whilst cruises can often seem like an ‘unreachable dream’ holiday to many people, with the help of CruiseCompare.co.uk, I am confident that anyone can find their perfect cruise."
