Coastal and Madagascar Cruises on bidorbuy R1 Auction

(15 September 2010) MSC Starlight Cruises has today placed several luxury cruises on a bidorbuy auction with a starting bid price of R1, without reserve. The auction will run for one week, closing at 14h00 on Wednesday 22 September.

All of the cruises up for grabs on bidorbuy this week are aboard the ever-popular MSC Melody cruise ship and take place in December 2010 and January 2011. This gives buyers ample time to plan a relaxing getaway. 

Jaco Jonker, CEO of bidorbuy, says that the inclusion of these four top-class cruises on bidorbuy is a fantastic opportunity for bidorbuy users to enjoy a holiday of a lifetime at a fraction of the cost. "These  R1, no-reserve auctions give buyers the chance to experience the thrill of online bidding, as well as an opportunity to  secure a luxury coastal cruise this summer at a really good price."

The cruises include two three-night coastal cruises (from Durban to Cape Town and from Cape Town to Durban) valued at R9,240 and two six-night cruises to Fort Dauphin, Madagascar, valued at R18,480.

MSC Starlight Cruises is no stranger to bidorbuy, having placed cruises on auction on the online marketplace a number of times over the past ten years. Allan Foggitt, MSC Starlight Cruises Marketing Director, explains his reasons for auctioning a selection of cruises on bidorbuy from such a low starting price: "MSC Starlight Cruises' auctions on bidorbuy attract a lot of attention from the public, which has the advantage of promoting our brand as South Africa's only operator of regular cruises from and around the South African coast", he says.

“Over one million people visit bidorbuy on a monthly basis, giving Starlight Cruises the ability to generate a lot of awareness around their other cruises on offer,  while at the same time giving bidorbuy users the opportunity to enjoy an excellent cruise aboard a favourite liner”, concludes Jonker.
