Cruise Travel is Booming
Cruising is America’s fastest growing vacation choice. And it’s no wonder. Cruising offers fantastic value — nearly everything’s included in a cruise vacation for one value-packed price! According to CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association), the cruise industry’s product delivery and customer satisfaction sets the standard for the rest of the travel industry. No other vacation category can match a cruise for product satisfaction and repeat business.
