Diane Lanz is the General Manager of Sales for the Captain Cook Cruises Company. She has over 20 years experience in the travel industry and fell in love with the idyllic Fijian Islands the very first time she went there.
In this Luxury Travel Podcast episode with Allen, Diane shares a wealth of knowledge with us and tells us about travelling to Fiji and escaping on board one of Captain Cook Cruises‘ five cruise ships.
They offer several different travel options, ranging from a day excursion to an overnight trip, to a three day, 7 day or even 11 day getaways through the northern islands.
About Diane Lanz
AGE – Old enough! But young enough to do it again 🙂
Married – Mother of 2 girls, 22 and 20.
Born in UK, married an Ozzie and moved across way back in 1991. Worked for Fiji Airways 1992 – 1995.
Worked for Castaway Island, Fiji and Reef Resort Fiji 1998 – 2015, so been involved with Fiji for quite a few years. Moved across to Captain Cook Cruises Fiji in 2015 as Castaway sold to Outrigger hotels.
Always worked in health and leisure and travel – speak English, French, German, and a small amount of Fijian – BULA.
Enjoy working for small family companies. Captain Cook Cruises Fiji is still run by the family who set it up originally – the Howarths. They’ve been operating for over 20 years in Fiji and offer fabulous small ship cruise experiences – 3,4, 7 or 11 nights through many of the Fiji Islands. It’s a great way to see a lot of Fiji in a short time – and to really immerse yourself in the culture.
I’m currently the GM Sales – for Australia, NZ, USA and Canada so have a reasonable size territory !! and am lucky enough to travel to these parts of the world at least twice a year.
The Captain Cook Cruises office is at Neutral Bay in Sydney – and I live in northern beaches of Sydney so it all works well – and I’m always close to the sea… as you can tell I love my vitamin C!!!
Enjoy participating in and watching sports – on and off the water, am member of Bilgola Surf club and other local sporting and community clubs.
Also enjoy good food and wine with friends and movies.
