In the four years I have been a franchise owner, I can’t tell you how pleased I have been with CruiseOne. From the very beginning, everyone at headquarters was transparent about everything and has been nothing but totally supportive of me as a business owner. I would like to particularly highlight the Support Services team since they are always very positive and helpful, even when I have had some confusing and difficult situations to work through. At the same time, the Training Team was also invaluable in
“My husband Dale and I joined CruiseOne in 1996 so you may consider us moldy-oldies in the company. I work with the clients and Dale does the bookwork and we both plan marketing efforts. When we were trying to make the big decision whether to buy a franchise, we asked ourselves what is the worst case scenario if this doesn’t succeed? Once we were able to face that possibility, we were comfortable with moving ahead and bought our franchise. We were both blown away when we went
“I started in the business with another franchise for six years. After three years, I realized that I needed more support with a better booking system and website. I researched and compared many other host agencies and franchises and I finally decided on CruiseOne, because CruiseOne has it all. I also got a recommendation from another CruiseOne franchise owner who made the move to CruiseOne. Once I switched to CruiseOne, I regretted that I had not done it earlier, everything is better. I am really happy with
After 18 years as a CruiseOne franchise owner I have switched brands to the new Dream Vacations. The corporate support for this changeover has completely exceeded my expectations. This type of customer support reminds me why I have remained a loyal franchisee for almost twenty years. The best business decision of my life was made in 1998 when I joined this organization. Being part of a large, successful and supportive network helps make walking into my office a daily pleasure.
“Cheryl and I started our CruiseOne franchise in 1999. We searched out different opportunities within the cruise and travel industry. We found CruiseOne from a recommendation by a friend. We came to learn that we had booked our own cruises with a sister company of CruiseOne for years. After doing all of our due diligence on the purchasing of a franchise, we selected CruiseOne. Why CruiseOne, because they were honest, friendly and informed us of all we could expect from them. We have been fortunate. After beginning
I definitely made the right decision when I decided to purchase my CruiseOne Franchise. My sales have increased every year since then and I now have a thriving business with a flexible schedule that I can operate from anywhere. Gaining a deeper education through travel is very important to me and I love sharing the world with my clients, whether they are first-time cruisers or experienced travelers. The travel opportunities that come from owning my franchise help enrich my knowledge of various destinations and suppliers and the
My partner and I were looking to get out of our current franchise business and were looking for a new opportunity. There were other travel franchises represented at the International Franchise Expo, however the representatives at CruiseOne stood apart from the others. Their demeanor, their professionalism, and their ability to answer my questions had an impact on my decision process. My feeling was that they were there to sell more than just a franchise ownership. They were showing me a partnership with a parent company. They did
“CruiseOne – Why do I love you? Let me count the reasons: When I first called CruiseOne and spoke with the head of franchising, he said, “I hear you want to join our family”. You notice that the word family and not the company is a very important distinction. The company flew me to their headquarters for 6 days of intensive training. This was training all the way, and not brainwashing to the CruiseOne way of operating. The training course is the most comprehensive in the industry.
“I was very fortunate to have met my husband on a cruise back in 2002! Many changes were happening in my life at the time, including a career change. I had worked in the travel industry many years ago so I was somewhat familiar with the industry. I have always wanted to return to travel but the right opportunity and perfect company just never fell upon me until I came across a wonderful travel agent at CruiseOne; she was the one who recommended the cruise I met
“I’ve been in the travel business for 34 plus years. I’ve had 10 years’ experience in sales with Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruises. In 2010, I went back into the agency side of the business and the only choice for me was CruiseOne. As a sales representative, I dealt with many CruiseOne agents. Everything about the CruiseOne agents and organization impressed me from their knowledge to their professionalism. On top of that, with a wonderful support program, I am now a successful CruiseOne Franchise Owner and loving
