Whitestar Managing Director, Shaun McCarthy, says,

“The South African market has shifted quite substantially in the past two decades. The need for all-inclusive offerings is often first and foremost in a South African’s ideal holiday choice, with the hassle-free factor being paramount once they are on holiday. The SA consumer does not want to worry about the fluctuating rate of exchange, the individual cost of each and every item and the possibility of being ‘out-of-pocket’ in a foreign country. Celestyal Cruises’ all-inclusive model removes all of these fears.”
