Cruises are an amazing travel product. It is incredible to wake up in a new destination every day, without having to move your luggage & belongings.
This is why more than 21 million people have cruised this year, and why this number has been growing steadily 10% every year for the last decade.
Unfortunately, the experience of booking a cruise is still very difficult. From complicated booking platforms, to confusing information… we’re in 2018, it should be easier.
- Enters Seahub -
Seahub was founded in mid-2017 by a group of entrepreneurs with the goal of modernizing the cruise space.
The founders of Seahub are seasoned entrepreneurs who have been building companies since they were teenagers.
Our team previously founded Flighthub.com and Justfly.com (the 3rd largest flight booking site, with more than 3 billion dollars in annual sales and 1,000 employees), as well as a network of sites that now has more than 100M visitors per day, and employs more than 3,000 people today.
In the last few years alone, our team was responsible for more than 4 acquisitions, and built some of the leading companies in sectors as diverse as analytics, advertising, travel, etc. They are also part of some of the world’s most prestigious organizations, such as the Peter Thiel Fellowship.
