Globally, cruising is one of the fastest growing travel segments, and the fastest in this region.
In addition, significant increases in cruisers wishing to travel in groups are being seen by agents, wholesaler, online cruise sellers and cruise lines and to ensure that each group makes the most of their cruise, many cruisers and groups have said they would welcome having a professional, private and exclusive host, escort or guide.
WHAT IS A CRUISE GROUP?
It may be a family group, friends who like to travel together, special interest groups in food, wine, history, cultural, religious, photography, sporting, military, music – classic or modern and many more, or maybe club members or a seniors group or friends, who enjoy travelling together.
WHAT IS THE WISHLIST?
CRUISEhostandmore, has created the answer in a very exciting global portfolio of leading professional group hosts, escorts and guides for groups travelling on cruise vessels or international special interest tours.
The key to the success of a group travelling together on a cruise, is the absolute success of the cruise for everyone in the group and being able to have the services of a their very own, exclusive, professional host, escort or guide, will ensure this.
CRUISEhostandmore has been created to satisfy these demands, all at a very reasonable cost indeed, per group member.
WHO ARE THE CRUISEhosts?
CRUISEhosts are highly experienced travel professionals, travel writers, photographers and academics.
Their major advantage is they some tend to be more mature, with many years of experience in the travel and cruise sector, appealing to all ages and CRUISEhostandmore can also offer hosts to fit in with potentially younger demographics or interests of the group.
Most importantly CRUISEhostandmore
THE ROLE OF CRUISEhosts:
CRUISEhosts ensure the absolute success of the cruise by the group.
CRUISEhosts are highly experienced in speedily resolving those issues and challenges which can arise from time to time when travelling.
CRUISEhosts are experienced travellers and cruisers, often providing inside track knowledge.
CRUISEhosts have a good knowledge of the places being visited, and many are available to provide on-board seminars and talks on the destination, its background and related topics. Some may also travel as couples, providing a greater range of additional areas of expertise: cookery, photography, gardens, history, or other specialties.
Full CRUISEhost bios are available to be provided to groups, clubs, travel agents, wholesalers, tour operators, on-line travel agencies, etc.
CRUISEhosts are carefully selected, undergoing credential checking and undertaking a comprehensive training programme, and are continuously monitored before, during and after the cruise.
BEFORE THE CRUISE:
A comprehensive pre-departure briefing between the CRUISEhosts and the group takes place and if required or possible, a pre-cruise meeting or tele-conference call and other communication with the members of the group.
AFTER THE CRUISE:
CRUISEhosts also undertake a full debriefing after each cruise. Feedback forms for group members are distributed at the end of each cruise, although feedback at any time during the cruise is also welcomed.
