TravelManagers LogoIn a game-changing move that will redefine the cruise industry, the acclaimed House of Travel Group has unveiled its master strategy for taking over the seas. At the helm is Jeff Leckey, now crowned as the General Manager of Cruise for Australasia, who brings an electrifying plan that promises to reshape the cruising landscape.

Standing shoulder to shoulder with Leckey are industry luminaries who boast an impressive 120 years of hands-on experience together. This dynamic team is setting a course to provide unparalleled cruise information, seamless agent-friendly booking solutions, and a wave of imaginative cruise offers that are bound to create ripples in the market.

Now entrusted with the prestigious title of Groups Manager, Matt Nicholl will be a name to watch. His record with House of Travel’s Cruise team has been exceptional, having championed the much-celebrated Hosted Journeys programme. His prowess also shines through with the notable Disney sailings garnering unprecedented attention. Nicholl’s mandate? To craft unparalleled experiences for the Group, spanning Australia and New Zealand.

Pauline McLennan, a veteran with a solid 12-year stint with the House of Travel, is set to play a pivotal role. Collaborating closely with Lia Malone, the TravelManager’s Cruise Product Manager, McLennan will be behind irresistible Fly/Cruise packages and Group deals destined to captivate Kiwi and Australian explorers.

Not to be missed from this power-packed ensemble is Jacqui Kennedy. Her decade-long tenure as the Cruise Reservations Team Leader at House of Travel speaks volumes of her expertise. She’s renowned for her intricate knowledge of the cruise sector, and her addition to the team will undoubtedly bring invaluable insights.

Jeff Leckey, clearly exhilarated by this formidable assembly, proudly states, “It’s truly exhilarating to partner with such a distinguished group of cruise connoisseurs. While some label us ‘cruise nerds’, we embrace that title, ensuring the essence of cruising is at the heart of our every endeavour.”

Without missing a beat, this new assembly of House of Travel’s luminaries convened for an intensive strategy session. Their immediate focus? The much-anticipated CLIA Cruise Month. Already setting sail in New Zealand and Australia, it promises to be a harbinger of the many groundbreaking initiatives from this team. The current slate of ocean cruise deals from House of Travel and TravelManagers is a tantalizing invitation for early-bird bookings.

Leckey added, “With enticing discounts and a slew of value-add packages up for grabs, there’s never been a more opportune moment for travellers to dive into our world of cruising.” Those eager to ride these new waves can explore the full spectrum of House of Travel Cruise deals here.
