2019 Voyages Cruise Planning Guide
U.S. Tours has grown rapidly because of our innovative motorcoach tour concepts, shifting from senior-based products to the Boomer marketplace. We’ve introduced Spectacular American Events, exciting thematic concepts and tour products that include better hotels, more choices and great dining that appeal to this younger audience. Now we plan to add that creativity and service to cruises.
With recent acquisitions and successful sales initiatives with outstanding partners, we found our business plan could no longer handle such a diversity of products. With a large collection of American tours and events, and a growing international tour product line, it became necessary to segment cruising into a division of its own. Our new product line, Voyages by U.S. Tours, has just launched – www.USToursVoyages.com.
We aim to become “group cruise central” for professional tour planners. Specifically, we want to bring these products to the ABA Members & Select Travel program planners that we currently supply, and provide them unique itineraries and high-end service.
We now have a dedicated marketing effort and a stellar cast of associates. Voyages will be managed by Kim Walters, who in the past year has developed marketing partnerships with 10 top cruise lines.
In the world of small ship cruises, we are able to offer customers great service and pricing on AmaWaterways, American Queen Steamboat Co., newcomer Victory Cruise Lines and luxury line Seabourn.
We also have preferred agreements and special departures with Holland America, Princess Cruises, Cunard, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity and Costa. These lines provide great pricing and high-quality service on all of the world’s oceans and many of its rivers.
We hope you enjoy this inaugural Voyages publication and use it throughout the coming year to plan your next group cruise. Our travel professionals stand ready to make your first or 20th cruise a memorable event for your entire group.
