At the 2016 Seatrade Cruise Global Convention, IBS Software and Celestyal Cruises signed a contract for delivery of IBS' next-generation iTravel Cruise Reservation System. Celestyal becomes the third travel company -- and the first cruise line -- to implement IBS' iTravel "software as a service," or SaaS, lifecycle reservations platform.
With iTravel, Celestyal will be able to offer inclusive cruise packages with dynamic pricing capabilities while enabling cross-sell and up-sell opportunities. Celestyal Cruises also currently employs IBS' Ship Partner onboard property management system across its five-ship fleet.
