Experience a different level of travel
Welcome to our new Experiential Luxury Tour company, Latitude 33.
Latitude 33 is the vision of Brett Dudley, founder and chairman of the ecruising group of companies - a highly successful cruise travel company that began operating in 2000 to pioneer online cruise holiday packages.
By 2005, ecruising had created a portfolio of luxury cruise and land tours incorporating worldwide travel. These exclusive itineraries outgrew the ecruising.travel brand so we decided to create a separate company that is dedicated to providing immersive experiences, luxury and effortless travel.
The name Latitude 33 is inspired by Brett’s favourite cities, Sydney, Cape Town and Santiago, all of which share the latitude 33 degrees South. The latitude 33 stretches across many diverse cultures in many different time zones.
Known in numerology as the Master Teacher, 33 is the most influential of all numbers, indicating selfless devotion to the spiritual progress of humankind. The other two master numbers, 11 (vision) and 22 (vision with action) form the base of a two-dimensional pyramid, and added together equal 33 (guidance to the world), the apex of the pyramid.
Latitude 33 is focused on providing travel experiences reminiscent of a time when all holiday travel was a luxury - an era when speed and price weren’t the key features, but rather time and elegance. Today, travel and holidays are part of the contemporary lifestyle. Latitude 33 aims to re-create the golden era of travel, with all the modern comforts expected by the discerning traveller.
I've always had a passion for traveling. One of my favorite things about being within the travel industry is that I get to live vicariously through clients and colleagues in hearing about their adventures all over the world.
It all started completing my diploma in Travel & Tourism and landed into my first job within the industry. At the time I would have never thought I would be working in a cruise based company. Now til this day I’m a cruise convert and cannot see myself working anywhere else!
Not only did I find my first experience on a cruise fascinating but I actually liked the cruise itself how you never have to change rooms, you can be in a new city every day and everyone is on deck to cheer and soak in the the beautiful sights.
