Cruise Holidays International reports it has named three cruise lines and one travel insurance supplier as their top suppliers of 2013. This year's awards honor:
- AmaWaterways (River Cruise Line of the Year)
- Celebrity Cruises (Premium-Luxury Cruise Line of the Year)
- Royal Caribbean International (Contemporary Cruise Line of the Year)
- Travel Guard (Non-Cruise Supplier of the Year).
Cruise Holidays franchise owners voted for the suppliers.
Cruise Holidays also recognized its top-selling cruise consultants during the 2013 Annual Convention aboard Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Breakaway. Two franchise owners received the group's Golden Anchor award.
During that convention Travel Agent got a chance to speak with executives Kevin Weisner and John Lovell about what's ahead for the company as it heads into 2014, its 30th year.
The franchise owners who voted were encouraged to consider how easily they can do business with each supplier on a day-to-day basis, as well as the overall quality of the product and support through the suppliersí local representation, along with other benchmarks that may be unique to that particular franchise owner.
