In this video, Adolfo Perez, senior vice president of sales and trade marketing at Carnival Cruise Line, shares why Dream Vacations Franchise is Carnival’s go-to travel agency partner. Dream Vacations Franchise won Carnival Cruise Line’s home-based agency of the year award last year.

Perez said of Dream Vacations, “When we need help doing something, you’re the one we go to. You have amazing marketing tools and technology to help you succeed and provide amazing support for Carnival.”

“Just like Carnival, you guys are a lot of fun. We also think you’re so knowledgeable and you know how to put the right person on the right cruise ship on the right cruise line. We really value what you do at Dream Vacations to do that for us.”

If you’re looking to get into the travel industry, travel franchise reviews can help you find an opportunity that is the best in every sense – regarded as the best by experts and the best choice for you. After all, when looking for a travel franchise, you’ll want to select a trusted brand that offers cutting-edge technology, state-of-the-art training and an extensive support system — the best value for your investment.

At Dream Vacations, we’re proud to be the best option for anyone looking to become a travel business owner – ranked the #1 travel agency franchise in 2023 by Entrepreneur Magazine. Better yet, we’re proud to say that our community of entrepreneurs would wholeheartedly agree – we’re truly the best!

What Experts Have to Say About Dream Vacations

Dream Vacations and Carnival Cruise Line have a longstanding, positive – and mutually beneficial – relationship. Adolfo Perez, Senior Vice President of Global Sales at Carnival Cruise Line, is grateful that Dream Vacations franchise owners are both amazing to work with, ready to help their clients turn travel dreams into reality.

“Dream Vacations is an amazing organization,” Perez says. “They have incredible turnkey working opportunities. They also have great technology, great training and great support for everyone who owns a franchise.”

Perez can say to potential Dream Vacations Franchise Owners that, in addition to all the tools and training you’d access, you’d also be joining a well-respected company that earns proven results.

“The passion you show, your ability to learn and help your clients with their cruise vacation booking and everything they need to know, that to us is immeasurable,” he says. “How can we not love working with you?”

In 2023, Dream Vacations was named the top travel franchise in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 ranking for the second year in a row!

We also placed second on Entrepreneur’s ranking of the best franchises for veterans, and we’ve been named amongst the top 50 franchises for veterans by the Military Times. Furthermore, Dream Vacations has won several awards from our partners at Celebrity Cruises, including the President’s Award for outstanding sales, and we’ve been named Norwegian Cruise Line’s Marketing Partner of the Year.
