Franchise Business Cruise Planners Earns 3 Honors

Home-based travel franchise business Cruise Planners recently took home three accolades at the World's Leading Cruise Lines Excellence Awards, which is hosted by Princess Cruises, Carnival Cruise Line and Holland America Line - Carnival Corporation's largest brands. This leading travel brand was the only home-based company honored, and it took home awards from each of the three cruise lines.

From Holland America Line, Cruise Planners received the highest honor, the Founder's Award Winner. It also earned Franchise of the Year from Princess Cruises and the Carnival Cruise Line.

Brand Founder and CEO Michelle Fee said the company combines a focused marketing approach with the best tech in the industry available today. According to Fee, it's the investment in marketing tech tools and the brand's commitment to agent training that makes it stand out from the competition, with agent sales increasing year over year as a direct result.

Carnival Cruise Line Senior Vice President of Sales and Trade Marketing Adolfo Perez offered his congratulations and added that the home-based franchise is consistently among Carnival's stronger partners, with exceptional dedication and loyalty to the Carnival brand.

Cruise Planners works with the brand teams of the Carnival Corporation in support of its travel agent network via the brand's innovative marketing tech campaigns. In addition to agent marketing support, this travel brand offers multi-touch initiatives ranging from direct mail to social media drives to those who take advantage of one of its franchise opportunities.

This American Express Travel Representative is the biggest home-based travel brand in the industry, with over 1,800 franchises nationwide, and there are still franchise opportunities available. The initial investment for this franchise is $10,995.
