Expedia CruiseShip Centers has unveiled eight new locations – in Alpharetta, GA; Camp Hill, PA; Laguna Hills, CA; as well as five new centers in Canada, joining the existing 150 locations from coast to coast who provide local support to our 3,600 independent cruise consultants, according to an announcement from the Vancouver-based franchise company.

Expedia CruiseShipCenters' retail franchise opportunity continues to attract interest from established franchise partners, according to company president Matthew Eichhorst , with three of eight new centers being opened by current franchise owners. “The decision to expand to multiple locations will help them support their growing sales teams and build on their success,” he said in a prepared statement. “Expedia CruiseShipCenters is committed to ensuring that our cruise consultants have access to the best systems, support and training to help them succeed.” Eichhorst said.
