Cruise in a Group and Reap the Benefits
Travel in general is fun, but traveling with a group is even better. Since 1988, Atlas Cruises and Tours has organized hundreds of meetings and incentive cruises for an impressive list of clients.
As a travel professional that specializes in group travel, we’ll help you plan it all! From choosing the right ship, to planning on-board private events and group shore excursions. Our dedicated team is experienced in servicing groups ranging in size from an intimate party of ten, to thousands of people. Enjoy the highest standards of quality and personal service; negotiated lowest possible group rates; and extra privileges and benefits, which may include FREE amenities such as category upgrades, cocktail parties, group photos, champagne, and even COMPLIMENTARY cabins.
Here are some of the other benefits of booking with a travel agency:
- SAVE TIME
Putting together a group can be time consuming. It does not cost you anything to use the expertise of a travel agency. You will pay the same, or less as booking direct with the cruise line. We handle all of the paperwork with the cruise line, and take all incoming calls for those interested in your group, answering any and all questions. Instead of giving people directions to the port or finding out their dining preference, group leaders can focus on promoting their group.
Another key benefit is that you will get to know the people assigned to your group, and we get to know you, for a more personalized experience. When you work with the cruise line, you will also call a toll free line and work with someone different each time you call. Also, depending on the size of your group, we will send onboard hosts to make sure all of your events go smoothly, at no additional cost to you.
We also have developed relationships with key contacts at the cruise lines, so making that special event happen, such as reserving the theatre or ice skating rink for your groups private use, is something we can arrange easily.
Our tools can help you promote your group with ease. We create a personalized, custom web page for your group where participants can learn more about the cruise, sign up and even pay online, saving you time and energy. We’ll keep track of all of the accounting and provide you with monthly reports.
We set up payment plans for our groups, giving the option of small deposits and up to 5 payments o give participants time to save money. Not everyone has $500 to put down on a cruise that is one year away, we can start deposits as low as $50 pp and build up the payments over several months.
Group cruises are perfect for family reunions, weddings, alumni’s, churches, corporate retreats and specialty groups. It’s an affordable and fun way to travel. Whether you are planning a fund raiser, family reunion or just a quick getaway, let an experienced cruise event manager work to create and deliver a memorable cruise experience, so all you have to do is sit back and leave the details to us.
