TORONTO — Flight Centre Travel Group has created a dedicated Cruise Specialist Team following increased demand in cruise inquiries and bookings.
The team, which includes a former cruise ship employee, has a combined four decades of cruise-specific experience.
“The demand for cruise travel is clear and definitive. Our dedicated cruise specialist team’s focus is to bring better value and expertise, along with a more robust customer experience for our clients,” said Brian McLaren, EVP Flight Centre Canada.
The timing of the team’s launch coincides with Flight Centre’s first-ever cruise brand campaign, ‘Let’s Set Sail,’ which highlights significant cruise discounts and incentives.
According to Flight Centre, more than 60% of its cruises are booked through travel agents. Added McLaren: “With most major cruise lines reporting full or near full recovery versus pre-pandemic levels, pent-up demand from more than two years of restrictions and border closures is now definitively translating into bookings as consumer confidence soars. A cruise travel specialist will not only help you with the complexities of booking your entire trip, but you’ll also have the added peace of mind of assistance should you need it before, during or even after your holiday.”
