Cruise Planners has expanded its range of vacation packages to include the new Completely Packaged Vacations Elite tier. Completely Packaged Vacations (CPV) are a custom solution that bundles vacations to provide attractive rates and commission levels, as well as customization options, giving agents more competitive packaging options for their clients. The new enhanced tier, Completely Packaged Vacations Elite, focuses on river cruises and luxury vacation packages, combining land and cruise travel, excursions, transportation and more. Agents can, for example, bundle Celebrity Cruises’ Signature packages that coincide with world-famous events, such as the America’s Cup in Bermuda, Mardi Gras in New Orleans, and the British Open in the UK. Another option is to bundle with AMA Waterways, where the package includes pre- and post-hotel accommodations with all transfers, cruise and discounted airfare on four special sailings, including a Sail with The Godmother cruise aboard AmaSerena with Cruise Planners CEO, Michelle Fee, in December 2017.
In addition, Cruise Planners agents have access to an in-house CPV concierge team, who are responsible for creating competitive, completely packaged vacations. So, if agents want to add custom upgrades, excursions or VIP elements to an already established package, or if agents are looking to create a new package, the CPV team can negotiate with vendors on the agents’ behalf.
