|BOOK YOUR CRUISE VACATION WITH A CRUISE EXPERT...|
When it comes time to plan your next cruise vacation, why trust a telephone sales clerk, or do-it-yourself website, when an industry expert is available to advise you?
If you’re thinking about taking a cruise vacation, but don’t know where to get the most up-to-date information, or how to choose the best ship and destination, why not consult an expert? A CLIA Master Cruise Counsellor is just the person you’re looking for!
In 1975, nineteen of the major cruise lines joined together to form the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA). They recognized the need for an organization, who would act as a monitoring body, in order to insure that the industry maintained the highest standards of service. One of the ways they go about doing this is through their CLIA Cruise Academy, which conducts an extensive program of training, testing and certification, for members of the travel agent community.
When it comes to cruising, CLIA’s Certified Master Cruise Counsellors, are recognized by the cruise industry, as experts in the field. The member cruise lines are proud to recognize these select individuals, as the consumer’s most knowledgeable source of cruise vacation information, and recommends them highly to prospective cruisers. Not only have these MCC’s proven their proficiency through completing extensive industry training activities, but they’ve also toured and inspected numerous ships, and have first-hand cruise experience on a wide variety of cruise lines and world wide itineraries. Of the approximately 285,000 travel agents in North America, less than 1% are certified Master Cruise Counsellors. I’m very proud to hold this elite level of certification.
With the growing number of cruise ships and destinations to choose from, now more than ever, working with a knowledgeable cruise counsellor who understands the type of vacation you are looking for, is your first step to the most memorable vacation of your life.
Why book with CruiseOne?
CruiseOne, is a division of World Travel Holdings , the largest seller of cruises in North America. Because of our tremendous buying power, we qualify for preferential pricing with most of the major cruise lines, with the savings being passed on to our cost-conscious clients. In fact, it is rare to find a smaller agency with better pricing.
Now, if that wasn’t enough, what I provide, over and above great pricing, is the benefit of my years of world wide cruising experience. Having sailed on well over 100 cruises, there aren’t many places I can’t provide first-hand knowledge about. This is what is known as “added value”. While it can’t be quantified in dollars and cents, it can certainly make the difference between your having that fabulous cruise experience you soon won’t forget, rather than one which failed to meet your expectations.
