About Us

When it comes to selecting a tour operator for your shore excursion and land programmes, we offer innovative and quality product, fast communications, flexibility, reliability, competitive pricing and the best available world-wide liability insurance policy in the business. Our Destination Management Companies currently serve 32 cruise lines on  luxury, premium and contemporary levels, specialising in half and full day shore excursions, overnights and overlands, pre and post cruise packages, private arrangements and turnaround movements.

Akorn DMCs are dedicated to creating 20% new and exciting land experiences each year to keep your product fresh in the marketplace and to assist you in addressing the needs of both first time and repeat cruise guests. Our ‘Operational Images’ for each port ensures real shorex pictures to help you envision the port and tours, which allows you the ease of editing/writing tour copy more quickly and with confidence. Of course, high resolution ‘taken on the perfect day’ marketing pictures are also available to aid your marketing and sales departments in putting together collateral shorex materials. Our ‘Port Information’ assists your office and vessels with the questions most asked by guests and onboard staff.

Akorn’s Cruise Division is a specialised division of the A&K Group of Companies, the proud recipient for six years running of Travel Weekly’s “World’s Best Tour Operator” and Porthole Magazine’s “Best Worldwide Tour Operator” awards, as well as Seatrade Insider’s Most Innovative Shore Excursions Awards for India 2013, Australia 2017, Brazil 2019 and Kenya 2022.
