Carnival Cruise Lines
"CruiseOne is a truly exceptional and valued business partner of Carnival Cruise Lines and our organizations have many remarkable synergies. Both companies are leaders in their field with a focus on innovation, training and success. Carnival was way ahead of the curve in recognizing the tremendous potential of the home-based business model and began working with and supporting home-based agents from very early on. CruiseOne has mastered the home-based agent franchise concept and created a phenomenally successful organization with award-winning marketing programs. Together, we are providing exciting and memorable "Fun Ship" cruise vacations to thousands of satisfied consumers each year. We are so impressed by CruiseOne that they were hand-selected to be part of our exclusive advisory board and as a result of their outstanding sales and marketing achievements; they are also part of our Elite Presidents Club, status reserved only for our highest revenue producers and business partners - and a position they have held for over ten years!"
Andy Stuart, Executive Vice President, Global Sales and Passenger Services

"Since their launch, in 1992, NCL knew that the CruiseOne business model would transform the way cruises were sold. NCL's support for the home- based model and CruiseOne has never been stronger. The CruiseOne franchisees have many great web-based business tools which clearly differentiate them in the home-based travel business. CruiseOne provides each owner with their own proprietary "live" booking technology system and extensive consumer facing websites. The extensive classroom, on ship and online training programs; one of the largest corporate support teams in the business; and personalized and professional marketing programs give their Franchise Owners all the necessary tools for success in the exciting travel industry. NCL is proud to participate in and supports all of their programs from training to marketing to sales. We believe in CruiseOne!”
