Re-launched Cruise Web Site Useful For Agents

Travel agents have a new resource at their disposal, which can be useful for information on cruise embarkation and disembarkation ports. The site, GreatPorts.com, allows agents to gather information on ports of call, which can be useful for advising clients on pre- and post-stays. Features include airport locations, parking rates, car rental services and area hotels. "GreatPorts.com takes many pieces of diverse data and distills it down to information specific to cruise passengers," said Joe Ewart, CEO of CruiseJungle, which recently acquired the site. "For example, a land-based visitor spending a week in Ft. Lauderdale needs information that is a lot different than a cruise passenger spending eight hours or less prior to boarding their ship." Currently, the site includes information on North American ports, but in late 2007 a Europe tab will be added followed by links to Caribbean ports. Visit [www.greatports.com].
