Published on Sun, Sep 30, 2012 (9:47 p.m.)Henderson, Nevada, October 21-27, 2012 – During the month of October 2012 Monica Tillotson of Travel by Monica will join thousands of cruise-selling travel agents for National Cruise Vacation Week, an exciting event designed to showcase the incredible choice, diversity and value of cruise vacations. Travel agencies across North America will team up with 26 member companies of Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) to provide consumers with exceptional offers and information on cruise vacations in every part of the world.
National Cruise Vacation Week is the successor to World’s Largest Cruise Night, which, for the last seven years, generated millions of dollars each year in new cruise bookings as thousands of vacationers took advantage of special value offers and other incentives to cruise. Last year, almost 6,000 agencies participated, generating over 52,000 bookings.
If they choose, area residents can find out all they need to know about cruising and even take advantage of these outstanding opportunities to cruise without leaving the comfort of home because Travel by Monica is hosting a “Virtual” National Cruise Vacation Week. By simply visiting the special agency Web page http://ncvw.cruising.org/travelbymonica, consumers can explore the incredible world of cruising and plan a cruise! Travel by Monica has chosen several short videos showcasing the exciting offerings and destinations from participating CLIA member cruise lines. For extra convenience, the Web page will be live until the end of the October.
National Cruise Vacation Week (NCVW) is the highlight of October’s National Cruise Vacation Month, the once-a-year period during which travel agencies across North America sponsor exciting events and promotions all focused on cruising – the most enjoyable, satisfying and value-oriented vacation option available in today’s marketplace.
