Cruise vacations have so much to offer travelers: the sun, the sea, great amenities on the ship and fascinating ports of call. If you love cruises, you may have thought about sharing that passion with others by getting involved in the exciting travel industry.

Figuring out how to start a cruise travel agency is a detailed but enjoyable process. With Dream Vacations, you can get your travel business up and running quickly!

Deciding on the best cruise travel agency for you to get involved with takes a lot of research. With Dream Vacations, you get access to multiple levels of support along with the chance to work with all major cruise lines and get special deals that you can offer to your clients.

Dream Vacations is a powerhouse in the travel industry; it’s also one of the lowest-cost cruise franchise opportunities available today! You can get started as a franchise owner for as little as $3,500 — even lower if you’re a military veteran. For that price, you get access to our industry-leading online reservation and financial systems, along with millions of dollars worth of award-winning marketing material that can be customized for your market and clientele! Also, from day one you are assigned a Franchise Business Manager who will guide you every step of the way as your business grows and you reach your goals. If you’ve got an entrepreneurial spirit, then selling cruises could be a great way for you to earn extra income for your family.

Travel Industry Training

As your Dream Vacations franchise grows, you’ll also have the potential opportunity to work with travel advisors — independent contractors whom you’ll mentor and coach as they get involved in the travel industry. Advisors have access to special cruise travel agent training that will increase the efficiency of your franchise.

As a Dream Vacations Franchise Owner, you’ll have access to flexible training modules that can be worked into your schedule. They’re offered online and on demand, meaning you can complete them anytime, anywhere! These modules cover things like:

  • Itineraries

We also hold immersive in-person regional training summits throughout the United States at various points in the year. And our Franchisee Business Center can connect you with our community of like-minded owners of cruise franchises who can answer questions and lend their support!
