Hamburg-based cruise portal DREAMLINES secures 20 million euro for global expansion

Within not even three years, the young enterprise has succeeded in carving out a leading position in the world’s key cruise markets

Not quite three years after launching, DREAMLINES, a globally operating cruise portal, has now attracted backing from further investors to fund the company’s rapid growth. The major proportion of the 20 million euro raised in this round comes from the investors Altpoint Ventures and Target Ventures. The previous investors Holtzbrinck Ventures, Hasso Plattner Ventures and Dimaventures also participated in this round.

Investors See Great Online Growth Potential

In recent years, DREAMLINES has proven the right combination of vision, a carefully thought-out strategy and the courage necessary for its implementation . This is both due to our outstanding team and our investors. We look forward to go even further by taking aboard experienced investors as Holtzbrinck Ventures and Hasso Plattner Ventures,” quotes DREAMLINES its partner Alexander Frolov from Target Ventures. “We see tremendous growth potential in online sales of cruises and are happy to allow DREAMLINES to further expand its business.”

Internationally Aktive Platform

DREAMLINES currently has 280 employees worldwide. In addition to the German-speaking market, the company also operates in Australia, Italy, France, the Netherlands, Russia and Brazil. In August, DREAMLINES acquired one of the biggest cruise portals in Down Under. The young company now aims to further accelerate its global expansion.
