German online cruise booking portal Dreamlines has secured €14 million additional funding from six existing investors.
The company, which was established in 2012, operates in seven markets around the world, claiming to it a broader global base than all other rivals.
Christian Saller, general partner at Holtzbrinck Ventures, said: “The new investment will enable Dreamlines to further consolidate its position as the uncontested market leader in Germany and gain a greater market share here, while also securing continued global growth.”
Dreamlines recently agreed a partnership with Aeroflot to provide cruises to the airline’s customers and is also extending its package business.
The company employs more than 350 people in Germany, Australia, France, the Netherlands, Italy, Russia and Brazil.
The portfolio consists of over 30,000 cruises operated by more than 100 cruise lines.
Managing director Felix Schneider said: “Think global, act local – with this philosophy we will continuously strengthen our position in existing markets, and are confident that we will open up new markets for our services.”
