The World Is Your OfficeIn business for over four decades, Cruises International has weathered crisis before. Although the COVID-19 pandemic has arguably impacted the travel industry more negatively than 9/11, both financially and in employment, Cruises International continues to foster the success of their independent travel advisors while still onboarding both new and experienced advisors.

Ines Turus, President and Founder said, “We have seen a downturn in the industry before, one specific example was in the housing market crash in 2009. We remained vigilant and came back stronger. With a program focusing on the success and growth of our independent travel advisor team, we will be back stronger – together.”

Cruises International Independent Travel Advisors are more prepared to weather this storm than others with diverse support staff, industry-leading technology, and strong relationships built with suppliers. Cruises International’s group department, marketing department, and management team are there to help grow advisors’ businesses during this time, from keeping an extra eye on any booking changes to creating marketing materials specifically for independent travel advisors and their personal selling goals.

“We are focused on our strong partnerships we have with preferred supplier, which ultimately serve our clients,” says Mary Clegg, Manager of the Mobile Advisor team. “Having been in business for over 42 years is monumental, especially when accompanied by the strong leadership offered by Ines Turus, the founder of Cruises International, a well-respected leader in the travel industry”.

Although some travel suspensions are still in place, now is the ideal time to continue, or even begin your journey in Travel Advising. Cruises International continues to hosts weekly, virtual training sessions including supplier training, best practices in sales, and how to market your business – all exclusively for Cruises International Advisors. Being a member of Signature Travel Network, advisors have access to free on-demand webinars, regional training summits, and annual sales conference. Advisors also receive one-on-one training, personalized website, and automated marketing tools to build their business from day one.
