More on cruising

I do not have long. And I do not know what the next few days are going to be like. Things are changing as I write this.

On to cruising… This is kind of an insider thing. Travel agents are always strongly encouraged to specialize. Believe me when I say that there is a lot we have to we have to learn. And we who are doing this from home not only have to learn about different travel products, we also have to learn about business and marketing. Lots of travel agents have decided to specialize in cruising. And a lot of cruise companies have excellent training programs for us to go through.. And for you cruises are definites products that we get commission on, so we don’t have to charge anything extra to help you plan your dream cruises.

It used to be difficult to get internet on board a ship. But these people understand that the internet is getting more and more important to people. And so this is something that has been worked on through the years. And not different cruise companies have internet packages whether you want to keep in touch with family and friends or need to work on the ship… I would love to know your thoughts on any of this.
