BLT (Business & Leisure Travel) is a local just like you – with our offices conveniently located in Cairns, Townsville and Weipa.  This year, as an award winning centre, we proudly celebrate 30 years of looking after North Queenslanders’ cruise holidays.

There are many ways you can book a cruise – direct with a particular cruise line, via an online cruise website, based who knows where or via any other travel agent – and all at very similar rates –  so why choose to book with BLT? 

There is simply no substitute for a knowledgeable local – you can always look us in the eye, gain honest opinions, make informed choices then allow us to do all the hard work so you can enjoy that perfect holiday.

Our team members are all passionate about travel and have great
in-depth knowledge of all things cruising.  We are professional cruise advisors and we are fortunate to have cruised on many occasions ourselves!

Our success in the cruising industry is proof that we work for our clients and not for the cruise lines.  We are always on the lookout for the best value deal for our clients based on your requests and requirements and we check across all legitimate and safe booking channels.

Your holiday starts at your very first meeting with us, at which point you will soon realise that even this cruise guide does not explain all the options and possibilities that are available to you.  Our experienced cruise advisors are here to guide you through the myriad of choices until you arrive at what will become your perfect holiday. 

Finding the best deal is just the beginning as we then remain on hand to assist you with all aspects of your entire journey:  Travel insurance options, required visas, connecting flights, special assistance and onboard requests, airport transfers, pre and post cruise accommodation, port transfers, shore excursions and additional tour options.

We are your essential travel checklist, making sure all the details are taken care of, so all you have to do is enjoy your well-earned holiday!

Cruise ships make regular calls to Cairns, Townsville and Thursday Island and as a major cruise retailer we are offered exclusive invitations to invite our clients for walk-arounds on these ships.  This is a perfect way to experience first-hand the diversity of styles of the ships and cruise lines that visit our region.

It doesn’t end there.  When you arrive home from your cruise,  we want to hear all about your trip – what you liked most, any difficulties encountered and in the event of an insurance claim we even assist you with the paperwork – we want your trip to be memorable for all the right reasons!

Having cruised once, you will have come to realise that BLT and your cruise advisor are trusted friends who will always be there to assist and guide you – every time you travel!
