Jump In, the Water is Warm
The cruise industry is one of the most exciting and dynamic of all franchise opportunities. With an average growth rate of 8.4% since 1980, cruising is one of the most lucrative as well.
The customer base for a SeaMaster Cruises' agent is large. 51% of the U.S. population or (nearly 145 million people) fall within the demographic profile of potential cruise clients. Of that total population about 42 million have taken a cruise.
SeaMaster Cruises has a host of programs to increase the effectiveness of your business. Our corporate staff is available to review your complete agent operations and to provide operations and programs designed to increase profits. Because of Carlson's industry clout they are able to provide large-scale programs that provide increased yield on various product types.
A Strong Focus
Your SeaMaster Cruises Franchise aligns you with an organization committed to developing the leading "home-based" cruise distribution system in North America. SeaMaster Cruises will use friendly technology wherever possible to improve the efficiency and way of life of the franchisee and their customers. The narrow product focus will allow you to quickly become a product specialist, with internalized knowledge of each of the products and how they suit individual travelers. This limited line-up will enable the franchisee to operate independently of a Global Distribution System (GDS), lowering operating costs and eliminating this added training burden. Because average transaction values for cruise vacations are substantially higher than typical full-service agency transactions, there are a reduced number of transactions required to achieve the same return.
The Right Brand Connection - Carlson Travel Network Associates, Inc.
One of SeaMaster Cruises chief advantages is its affiliation in the Carlson Travel Network Associates, Inc. (Carlson) family, which also includes other industry-leading travel agency franchise brands. Together, the three brands; Cruise Holidays, Results Travel and Carlson Wagonlit Travel encompass nearly 1,700 travel agencies in the United States and Canada, as well as Carlson Companies' overall brands in hotel, restaurant, cruise ship and other holdings. With this comes the comfort of the best franchise management experience there is, plus a support infrastructure no one can match.
