Testimonials:

“I have always dreamed of owning my own business and had extensive experience in corporate America. The support of the Expedia CruiseShipCenters franchise system allows me to capitalize on my experience while taking advantage of a proven system. I'm not left to re-invent the wheel."
Jon Harvill Birmingham, Alabama – Franchise Owner

“The idea of a big digital company also doing brick-and-mortar locations to appeal to every segment of the market was attractive to me and I felt that it was very forward-looking. Expedia is a household name that has instant credibility and instant familiarity with our customers. That is a big differentiator from most of our competitors who don’t have a big brand for people to connect with.”
Chris Meyer Orange County, California – Franchise Owner

“We are so grateful to work with the very talented and dedicated team at Expedia Cruises. They are industry leaders that have incredible technology, advisor education, and marketing tools that support their Vacation Consultants. During these very challenging times, more than ever, Expedia Cruises has proven once again their tremendous value and partnership to not only Carnival, but to the travel industry overall. With the support of their corporate leadership team we have been fortunate enough to partner more closely than ever and are even more optimistic about our partnership and coming out of this stronger than ever”
Adolfo Perez, Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Trade Marketing, Carnival Cruise Line

“Expedia as a brand is so powerful, but what is really powerful are the people behind the brand. Celebrity Cruises, a long-time partner of Expedia Cruises, believes their leadership team, HQ support team, franchisees, managers and vacation consultants are among the best of the best in developing the most innovative technology, marketing and training. When you join Expedia Cruises, you are in great hands to have a fun, exciting, motivating and fulfilling career.”
