Australia’s premier expedition cruise line, Orion Expedition Cruises, has joined forces with David Morris International (DMI) to boost U.S. sales and marketing efforts, helping to expand the luxury expedition product’s reach in North America. As an expert in marketing cruise-based experiential travel, contracting DMI was a natural next step for Orion Expedition Cruises, and together, the brands look forward to enhancing market share via DMI’s invaluable experience and vast network of industry contacts. DMI will work alongside Orion Expedition Cruises’ existing sales team headed by Karen Wiseman and Lesa Bain.

In celebration of this new relationship, travel agents can now take advantage of a limited-time agent bonus promotion, whereby agents will receive USD $750 in bonus commission for all new reservations made between June 1 – 30, 2009.

“David Morris’s reputation and experience in the luxury market segment is widely recognized,” said Sarina Bratton, Founder and Managing Director of Orion Expedition Cruises. “For a niche luxury brand such as Orion Expedition Cruises, we believe the combined expertise and exposure David Morris International can bring to our company will deliver significant growth in the North American market.”

“We are delighted be working with Orion Expedition Cruises, and I am very excited to be in collaboration once again with Sarina Bratton, a recognized pioneer in the industry,” said David Morris, President of David Morris International. “I have long admired Orion Expedition Cruises and look forward to representing such a fine expedition ship.”
