Flight Centre’s new Cruise specialist brand Cruiseabout is continuing with its aggressive growth strategy opening two new shops today, bringing the total number of shops to 4 within the last year, all based in British Columbia.

The new Cruiseabout shops are located at 2251 West 41st Avenue in Vancouver’s Kerrisdale region and at 1309 Lonsdale Avenue in North Vancouver. Both shops will be open Monday through Saturday and will be closed Sundays. The openings come less than a year after opening its first two shops last spring in White Rock and Port Coquitlam. The first two shops were launched as Discountcruises.ca but have been re-branded to be consistent with the travel retailer’s bricks and mortar cruise brand throughout its global network. Cruiseabout currently has shops in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa and becomes Flight Centre Canada’s 10th consumer-facing brand. Discountcruises.ca will remain as an online entity available for bookings and email inquiries.

“We’re very excited that the business is growing in the way that we anticipated and look forward to opening up more Cruiseabout shops across Canada in the coming months.” Says Tanya Pocuca, Brand Leader for Cruiseabout. “We expect to build on the success of the brands globally and have a similar strong brand awareness throughout the country.”
