IST LogoIST announced it plans to add 1,300 more cruises to its booking engine platforms, Cruise Browser and Cruise Browser 4.

"With the Cruise Browser we are present in 18 countries and have just added new collaborations in Mexico and Columbia," commented Manuel Sardi, CEO, IST.

Agents in Spain, France, Portugal, Romania, Greece and Morocco already use the booking platforms, as do reps in Argentina and Brazil, the company said.

"Cruise Browser crosses borders, adapting to different markets with custom configurations," Sardi added.

The platform is available in seven languages, featuring 14,000 cruises from 30 different cruise lines. Next up, IST plans to launch a Hebrew version.

The company said agents can book cruises in three easy steps, and the software has been developed so agents and wholesalers can use it without having to invest in IT development cost.

"The additions of new companies and routes will mean an increase in cruise options for travel agents to sell," IST said, in a prepared statement.
