Premier Christian Cruises Launches Travel Office
September 09, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsNashville, TN - The overwhelming popularity of their cruise offerings has compelled Premier Christian Cruises to launch its own travel office. The Premier Christian Cruises Travel Office is now open to cater specifically to the needs of Christian cruise travelers and other cruise-related companies and ministry efforts.
"Most cruise companies use travel agencies to field incoming calls. When a potential customer calls, they aren't actually speaking to the cruise company," notes Jonathan Martin, Premier Christian Cruises' VP of Operations. "That's where we differ from most travel agencies. Our Travel Office staff understands the Christian travel marketplace and the needs of the Christian consumer."
"We credit a large part of the early sales success of The Music Boat 2007 cruise, which had 50% of its cabins sold within the first 11 days, to the representatives at the travel office," comments Martin. "Premier Christian Cruises has been blessed with phenomenal growth for the three full-ship charters that we currently offer. This success has further encouraged the company to develop other cruise opportunities outside of the popular Girls Get-A-Way Cruise, K-LOVE's Friends & Family Music Cruise and The Music Boat."
However, the Premier Christian Cruises Travel Office is not just about sales. It is their goal to assist people with all of their travel needs, even if those needs are outside the norm. Their goal is to make sure that when a traveler calls, they enjoy an entirely different experience than they will find anywhere else on a customer service line for any other service or product.
One thing that sets the Premier Christian Cruises Travel Office apart is the prayer list maintained by their call center which is updated as concerns are voiced during customer calls. The representatives even make a point to direct callers to pastors for additional guidance and help, and follow up to see if they can be of further assistance.
The Premier Christian Cruises Travel Office is now offering this stellar service to other companies, music industry organizations, and ministries for charters or sales of blocks of cabins. Companies and ministries using the travel office are guaranteed that their callers will receive the same personal service given to the company's own passengers. More information about Premier Christian Cruises Travel Office services is available by calling Jonathan Martin, Premier's VP of Operations at 615-469-1090.
The Premier Christian Cruises Travel Office call center has extended hours to meet the needs of today's busy society. Representatives are available Mondays - Thursdays 7:00 a.m. - midnight. EST, Fridays from 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. EST and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. EST. These convenient hours allow callers to be able to reach a live representative who can assist them no matter where they are calling from, whether they reside on the east or west coast.
"We aim for our passengers to enjoy every step of the vacation process from booking their trip to setting foot at the return port of call," says Darrell Burrow, Premier Christian Cruises' Director of Sales. "We want to provide a vacation experience that will leave people with fond memories that will last them a lifetime."
"We're not about selling cruises," adds Burrow. "We believe that we are making appointments that God is putting into place for people to cross paths for His glory and purpose."
Premier Christian Cruises is currently booking passage for the Girl's Get-A-Way Cruise (November 9-13: Jacksonville, Fla. to Freeport and Nassau, Bahamas), K-LOVE's Friends & Family Music Cruise 2007 (January 22-26, 2007: Miami, Fla. to Grand Turk Island) and The Music Boat 2007 (April 30-May 4, 2007: Miami, Fla. to Ocho Rios, Jamaica).
