The second installment of the ‘How to Book the Perfect Pre- and Post-Cruise Package’ WAVEinar is scheduled for Feb. 23 at 2 p.m. EST. Jennifer Bond, Strategic Account Manager, will lead participants through how to book sightseeing tours, shore excursions and transfers to enhance their clients’ cruise vacations.

Upcoming weeks will include international ports such as Rotterdam / Amsterdam, Copenhagen, and London. The North American ports of Anchorage, Seattle and Vancouver also will be included, among others.
TravelBound also provides travel agents with sightseeing experiences to enhance their clients’ pre- and post-stay experience. Sample activities range from excursions like the Castle Tour of North Sealand in Copenhagen, to more adventurous options like crossing suspended walkways above a granite cliff during the North Shore Mountain Discovery in Vancouver.
