Who Is Travel The World:Travel the World represents a select number of premium brands, with the responsibility of increasing awareness and promoting these boutique travel companies within the Australian travel market. Combining our extensive industry knowledge with the experiences gained from representing luxury brands, Travel the World has created successful partnerships with a number of brands including Windstar, Virgin Voyagers, Aqua Expeditions, and PONANT. By working closely together with the aim of growing market share, we have been able to implement a number of different strategies to fulfil mutually beneficial goals.


Windstar : Welcome to the casually elegant small ship world of Windstar Cruises. Leave the crowds behind on a casually elegant cruise ship carrying fewer than 300 privileged guests. No lines. No waiting. Just a warm and intimate ambience you won’t fine on larger cruise ships.

Sail right into the heart of Old World villages, hidden coves, and harbours off the beaten path – places only Windstar’s small cruise ships are welcomed. Every itinerary is expertly crafted and artfully planned, visiting both boutique ports and bucket-list capitals. Share intimate moments away from the crowds. Immerse yourself in local culture and cuisine, and a behind-the-scenes experience with Windstar’s complimentary Destination Discovery Events.


And of course, part of the Windstar magic is our incredible personal service. Enjoy undivided attention from a crew that delights in remembering your name and preferences. Both gracious hosts and ambassadors, they delight in surprising you in discrete ways – satisfying your sweet tooth with an extra chocolate on your pillow or sharing the location of a favourite seaside café. Welcome to Windstar Cruises – an experience that is truly 180 degrees from ordinary. For more information or to book call 1300 749 875, email or contact your Travel Agent.


Virgin Voyages : This holiday is just for those 18 and over. No kidding. (See what we did there?) With elevated experiences curated with adults in mind, we’ve created a place where only your Sailors’ inner-child will be roaming free. We’ve ditched buffets and pre-set dining times to bring your Sailors fresh flavors and unexpected pairings with made-to-order food from our 20+ unique eateries—all included. Dine on churrasco steak and lemon cheesecake at The Wake, mezze-style bites and glasses of rosé in the open air of The Dock, or get your crew together for a lively Korean BBQ free-for-all at Gunbae—all with views of the waves. No stuffiness, just premium service and endless options—all On Us.


Ponant : As the only French cruise company, PONANT is an ambassador of the “French Touch” around the world. With French crew, discreet service, refined cuisine and partners with excellent track records, we do our utmost to maintain our unique cruising philosophy. Our dining menu is created in partnership with Ducasse Conseil, chef Alain Ducasse’s high-end catering company. Our chefs are all French and create elegant and sophisticated menus every day based on fine food and quality products.


Aqua Expeditions : Since founding and starting Aqua Expeditions thirteen years ago, it has been the vision and mission of Francesco Galli Zugaro to create intimate, small ship expeditions to distant parts of the world.

Now, more than ever, access is the new measure of luxury. What Aqua has stood for since the very beginning comes to the forefront, demonstrating the advantages of small explorer vessels in bringing families and friends on travels to the remote Amazon River of Peru, the Mekong River in Southeast Asia, the Galapagos Islands of Ecuador, and the pristine coastal waters of Eastern Indonesia. With specially-curated experiences and an engaging 1:1 guest to guide ratio, our boutique expedition vessels offer personalized service, onboard our spacious private and entertaining spaces and on our tailor-made excursions.

Venturing into unspoiled sanctuaries to witness the beauty of nature and wildlife, we sail to remote destinations with minimised human interaction, secluded from crowds.


Swan Hellenic: Swan Hellenic expedition cruises offer guests the chance to experience rarely visited destinations across the globe whilst enjoying unparalleled elegance. Offering an enchanting selection of voyages to untouched locales across the globe, from the Arctic to Antarctica, Swan Hellenic cruises are the perfect fit for guests yearning for grand and immersive adventures.
