Q) I have a new tour product/idea I think will work for the cruise industry. How do I get started?

A) You should contact your local RTO (Regional Tourism Organisation) if you have a new product idea and want to ascertain if it is suitable for the cruise market.

All tours sold onboard ships are vetted by New Zealand ground handlers.

Your RTO should have good relationships with ground handlers and should be able to guide you to a relevant ground handler(s).

New Zealand Cruise Association supports the following ground handlers.
