CruiseOne & Cruises Inc. have launched a new pre- and post-hotel program named Cruise-N-Stay. The 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 companies said.
“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.
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 invoice displays all hotel and cruise travel details, making the process easier for agents and their customers. Agents are guaranteed a minimum of 14 percent 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.
