Lee's Summit, MO, October 30, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- While traveling as a group is fun, entertaining, enriching and enjoyable; the planning, notifying, informing, registering, accumulating, changing, updating aspect of the planning process isn’t. Any group organizer, event planner or executive hosting a customer/employee sales meeting or incentive trip knows that the success is in the details – and there are a lot of them! Groups with 15 or more rooms who book cruises or all-inclusive resorts with Cruise Dreams between now and December 31, 2015 will receive a complimentary, customized booking/information website. Others charge anywhere from $100 per participant up to $60,000 for such a website. And of course, it’s not something even offered if you were to book directly with a cruise line or resort.
What’s the best way to communicate with passengers, inform participants about the destination, showcase the ship or property, describe the special amenities, list all events, excursions and extras while efficiently and accurately registering participants and guests? A group travel site compiles all information needed to prepare rooming lists for cruise or resorts, and airline manifests as well as keep up with special requests, dining preferences, special needs, excursion choices and more.
“Cruise Dreams’ customized group websites take the headache out of being the travel coordinator,” said Kim Gibbons, President and Founder of Cruise Dreams. “Whether you’re planning a reunion, wedding, anniversary party, affinity special interest group, a corporate sales meeting or incentive trip by land or at sea for your best customers/employees, everyone will appreciate the benefits of a group information and booking website and being free makes it a bonus! Imagine how easy your next group could be.”
Cruise Dreams’ group websites are a work of art. The intention is to excite the participant with gorgeous images, keep them engaged with necessary and intriguing information and above all else, make it easy to exchange the necessary data that travel requires these days. That information is then provided to the group planner or company on whatever timetable they choose. Accuracy is improved, customer satisfaction skyrockets, motivation increases as participants share details with family and friends and best of all, it requires very little effort on the part of the travel planner.
Gibbons adds, “It’s just one of the ways that we take the brave group leader or executive running an incentive program into account. We provide assistance before the first person is booked and even more when the trip actually operates. We take all the work off their plate so they can do what they do best! This is our expertise and our passion for the past 18 years.”
Another perk Cruise Dreams provides at no charge is on-site travel staff. With any group of 50 or more passengers, Cruise Dreams travel staff are on site throughout the program, handle all group needs, host a hospitality desk, and oversee venues, excursions and more. Travel coordinators can even enjoy the trip themselves and spend time with guests, employees or clients and build relationships. Again, allowing you to enjoy your trip and spend time with your guests building relationships.
That’s another Cruise Dreams’ difference. Most agencies hire freelancers who receive a packet of information a short time prior to the group’s arrival. Cruise Dreams assigns a team to each group who is involved from booking, throughout the program onsite and until all guests return home. This allows a higher level of familiarity with each group, knowledge of all details, understanding of the goals, and the ability to anticipate any issues before they create a problem. Using team members onsite enhances the experience and success of a trip in a way that no on-demand “employee” could.
Interested companies or travel planners for reunions, alumni groups, weddings, or any kind of special interest group, should call 877-999-4533 for a tour of one of the Cruise Dreams group travel booking sites. There is no cost or obligation for a Cruise Dreams proposal for the trip. Many companies are impressed by the value and unique programs that Cruise Dreams delivers and the complimentary website is a welcome bonus. Trip must be initiated before December 31, 2015 with a minimum of 15 rooms or staterooms to qualify for the free group booking website.
