Become a Cruise Travel Agent
Cruise Travel Agent Benefits
Cruising is thriving and, with it, travel agents that specialize in selling cruise travel are too. Over 70% of travelers book cruises with travel agents. Why? Because cruising requires specialized knowledge and can be overwhelming to navigate for those outside of the travel industry.
Cruise travel agents rely on the resources of their host agency and their connections to cruise lines and industry partners to navigate this growing and changing segment of the travel industry.
Why should you consider becoming a cruise specialist?
- The cruise travel market continues to grow as more travelers learn the thrill of sailing from destination to destination.
- This growing market and the avid support of travel agents by cruise lines set a foundation of steady sales and growing clientele.
