CruiseOne & Cruises Inc. today announced the launch of an exciting new pre- and post-hotel program, rounding out their offerings as an integrated travel powerhouse. The companies’ Cruise-N-Stay program allows agents to seamlessly book pre- and post-hotel stays at more than 150 port city properties around the world. While the new initiative offers agents guaranteed commissions and a new revenue stream, it simultaneously offers CruiseOne & Cruises Inc. customers aggressively negotiated hotel rates with unique added values.
“The launch of Cruise-N-Stay means that our agents can now customize practically every imaginable aspect of the dream vacation experience,” said Dwain Wall, Senior Vice President and General Manager of CruiseOne & Cruises Inc. “Now that CruiseOne & Cruises Inc. are a comprehensive vacation planning company, our agents have endless opportunities to be profitable and consumers can come to us for nearly all of their travel needs.”
As part of its initial launch, the CruiseOne & Cruises Inc. Cruise-N-Stay program includes aggressive rates in 150 port cities worldwide. More cities and hotel properties are expected to be added to the Cruise-N-Stay program on an ongoing basis. As part of the pre- and post-hotel booking process, agents will be provided with detailed property descriptions, photo galleries of each property, hotel location maps and more. The new program is fully integrated into the CruiseOne & Cruises Inc. proprietary booking engine, Cruise Control. One simple invoice displays all hotel and cruise travel details, making the process easier than ever for agents and their customers. Agents are guaranteed a minimum of 14% commission on each booking, which is paid when the booking is confirmed.
The launch of the Cruise-N-Stay program is the latest in a string of new initiatives announced by CruiseOne & Cruises Inc, including the recent rollout of a new Preferred Partner Land Travel program. Together, these innovative programs set CruiseOne & Cruises Inc. apart as leaders in vacation planning.
