The arrangement with Serandpians by Traveller Made extends exclusively to the flagship 71-guest mega-yacht, Variety Voyager which is sailing in the Eastern Mediterranean in 2022/23. The vessel now sits within the consortia’s stable of Small Cruise and Expedition Boat partners.
In a statement, the group said: “At Serandipians by Traveller Made we have the important mission of enabling our travel designers to offer the most exceptional experiences to their discerning clients.”
“We trust we are fully aligned with what Variety Cruises have to offer – small and beautiful, luxurious vessels that take people on extraordinary journeys, away from the more travelled waters. We welcome Variety Voyager to our collection and look forward to a strong partnership.”
The cruise company’s Director of Global Sales, Jarrod Zurvas, said that following a “very rigorous process… I’m very pleased to share the news that Variety Cruises is now a preferred supplier”.
“During these uncertain times travel agents will be more important than ever, and this is one of the main reasons we have partnered with Traveller Made, a consortium of experienced agents known for their excellence,” Zurvas said.
Zurvas, Quark Expeditions’ former Director of Sales, Asia Pacific, added: “We pride ourselves on our bespoke, off the beaten path itineraries and our quest to continually open up new destinations for our ‘adventurous travellers’ which speaks to the core of Traveller Made.”
The 68-metre Variety Voyager features 36 Ocean View cabins split over four categories, ranging in size from 12 to 21 square-metres, plus one 24 sqm Owner’s Suite – all with ensuite bathroom and showers. The upper and main-deck cabins onboard have windows, while lower deck cabins have portholes. Facilities include both an indoor and outdoor lounge/bar and restaurant, mini-library, mini-spa suite, and water sports equipment. Built 10 years ago, Variety Voyager features twin stabilisers and has a cruising speed of 13 knots.
