Manchester-based Cruise1st has grown 35% and increased profitability since its acquisition by German online specialist Dreamlines Group a year ago.
Dreamlines has itself announced gross revenue of more than €400 million in the past year “following a number of successes in its core business”.
Dreamlines said in a statement: “As forecast, combining a hugely successful global OTA with the Cruise1st proficiency and database of UK customers has resulted in higher sales volumes and margins, and delivered huge growth for the business in the past 12 months – with Cruise1st growing by 35% and increasing profitability.”
Danyal Taraghi, managing director at Dreamlines, added: “Our strength is in creating unique cruise products, providing our customers with high-quality consultations and always offering them the right cruise holiday experience.
“This is possible due to our technological solutions, streamlined distribution channels and our fast and efficient communication process.”
