Mr and Mrs K need names!

Mr K has been a staple of the Cruise Sale Finder website since it was launched in 2009, keeping a lookout from the masthead for the best cruise bargains. Now, joined by the lovely Mrs K, he has come to life and moved from computer screen to TV screen to spread their message Australia-wide. Like so many of you, they are on the hunt for the perfect cruise at the right price, and Mrs K knows exactly how to find it.
You can be a part of the story and win a $200 credit with Cruise Sale Finder while you're at it! We are looking for the perfect names for our marsupial cruise loving couple, and we need your help. We've come up with a shortlist, but it's up to you to narrow it down with your votes. 
Here are the monikers we've come up with in consultation with a panel of koala-naming experts. Cast your vote for the best one and we'll put you into the draw to win $200 credit towards your next cruise with Cruise Sale Finder - you never know, you might just bump into this dynamic duo onboard!
  • Baz (Barry) and Shaz (Sharon)

Need more information before you can put your finger on the perfect set? You can get to know Mr and Mrs K a little more in-depth on the Cruising Koalas page. Find out what makes them tick, where they come from and why they are itching to get away from it all on a fabulous cruise holiday. 
Don't forget to keep an eye out for the announcement of Mr and Mrs K's first names on our Cruise Sale Finder Facebook page, and continue to look for the happy couple on your TV screens!

While you are waiting for our lovely mascots to be named, you can have a look at the future cruises departing for New Zealand, the South Pacific islandsSoutheast Asia or even South America.

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!

    Hi there! I might be too late for the names for the koala's. However was wondering about these two names. Koobor, Koolah There are different names that were given to the koalas depending on the different tribes and dialect that I just looked up on and thought how wonderful would it be to back some of our lovely heritage.
