Cruise Holidays is approaching a major milestone in its ongoing service to the traveling public.The network of cruise-specialty travel agencies will soon kick off its 25th anniversary with a year-long celebration which will include a celebratory Alaska cruise for all Cruise Holidays clients, past and present. Founded in 1984, Cruise Holidays is the oldest and largest cruise-specialty retail franchise in North America, with stores in both the United States and Canada.
“There is so much to celebrate, we couldn’t help but start the celebration a little early,” said Peter D. Thomson, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Cruise Holidays. “One of the biggest highlights of our anniversary year will be our 25th Anniversary Cruise to Alaska. We want our clients to celebrate with us as the VIPs they are. Without them, we wouldn’t be where we are today.”
Cruise Holidays is partnering with Holland America Line for its 25th Anniversary Cruise. The 7-day celebratory cruise will be aboard the ms Westerdam departing Seattle, WA, on July 26, 2009. The splendor and rugged beauty of Alaska can be experienced both onboard as well as in the various ports of call: Juneau, Sitka, Ketchikan, Alaska; and Victoria, British Columbia. Special guests of Cruise Holidays will be able to attend two exclusive cocktail parties, receive shipboard credits of $25 per person (for the first two passengers in the stateroom), enjoy a complimentary 25th Anniversary souvenir group photo per stateroom and complimentary wine at two dinners.
“While we are excited to have our clients celebrate with us, this year-long celebration is also very special for our stores. Because of our cruise experts’ dedication, expertise and service, along with the network’s ability to adapt and change with the times, we’ve been able to enjoy longevity and success,” added Thomson. “A quarter of a century is definitely a milestone worth celebrating.”
