Ambassador Cruise Line selects Paysafe as payments partner

New UK based cruise company Ambassador Cruise Line has inked a new partnership with Paysafe a specialised payments platform.

The agreement will see Paysafe provide Ambassador Cruise Line with a payment gateway and acquiring service to enable the processing of payments for guests' cruise purchases.

Ambassador Cruise Line is the first British cruise line to launch since 2010. 

Ambassador will offer adult-focused no-fly itineraries that are primarily aimed at the 50-plus market.

Ambassador's first ship, Ambience will carry up to 1,400  and her maiden season will run from April 2022 through May 2023  visiting 88 ports across the Baltics, Greenland, Arctic, Iceland and beyond.

Christian Verhounig, CEO at Ambassador Cruise Line, said: "While we are offering a fresh approach to cruise holidays, our ethos is to maintain very high standards and values. Our premium-value offering starts with the booking experience. It is therefore important for us to partner with a payments provider with extensive travel sector knowledge and specially tailored services."

Paysafe has tailored its services for tour operators, airlines and cruise lines to support the travel industry recovery.

"We have focused on finding innovative ways to meet the specific needs of travel businesses and provide a specialised acquiring service and payment gateway. Our aim is to give travel companies of all types flexibility, with better payment terms and no collateral or rolling reserves," said Paulette Rowe, CEO of Integrated & Ecommerce Solutions at Paysafe.
