There’s nothing better than traveling the world, and there’s something especially poignant about voyaging around the globe on a luxury cruise. With intriguing destinations on the horizon and dedicated staff at your service, you’ll be completely pampered. And yet, there are even more ways to enhance this experience. Cruise Specialists can arrange for your cruise vacation to include a welcoming voyage host, who will add a sense of camaraderie and provide additional destination knowledge about your itinerary while on board.
Cruise Specialists has made sure to pick the best of the best, and our welcoming, talented hosts reflect that. Our experienced hosts have each sailed on dozens of cruises and they love to show other Cruise Specialists clients the best things to do along the journey. Hosts are extremely familiar with the port cities you’ll encounter on the voyage itinerary. They’re aboard to help you navigate your way throughout a memorable vacation. These personable experts want to help you get the most out of your cruise.
Other benefits of hosted cruises include a wealth of travel tips and secrets at your disposal. Approach your voyage hosts for everything from help prioritizing sites at your next stop or finding little-known eateries to sate your appetite for local cuisine. Because our hosts have sailed with us countless times, their first-hand knowledge is unsurpassed. Turn to your voyage host for assistance when it comes to experiences you can’t find in a guide book.
Exclusive Shore Excursions
Not every travel agency has a dedicated shore excursions manager, which is what puts Cruise Specialists ahead of the industry. Our privately curated shore excursions are exactly what you need to truly embrace your destination. Cruise lines offer interesting and pleasurable shore excursions, while Cruise Specialists goes a step (or so) further to create a one-of-a-kind experience. From sightseeing in exclusive motorcoaches destined for the ultimate can’t-miss stops, to smaller groups for a more close-knit tour group, or even a private car and driver just for you, the extra effort won’t go unnoticed by discerning cruisegoers.
Car & Driver
Do you want to visit a local treasure that is not offered as a shore excursion? Or, maybe you want an easy way to zip around the port city. While it can be intimidating to drive in the country you’re visiting, why not consider a private car and driver? Cruise Specialists has professional relationships with tour operators around the world, and our Shore Excursions department reserve a private car and driver to navigate around your next destination and ensure the sightseeing is tailored to your desires. Additionally, on a growing number of voyages, Cruise Specialists offers a complimentary private car and driver in at least one or two ports of call on select itineraries. This is an incredible value-add that you can ask your Cruise Specialists Cruise Consultant about.
Peace of Mind
Another one of the amazing benefits of hosted cruises is the peace of mind having a knowledgeable host aboard provides. Solo travelers especially appreciate the fact that they have a host traveling alongside them on every step of the voyage. Attend open “chat times” to ask your host for advice on port activities or things to do on the ship, or even about the cultures of the upcoming destination countries. Cruise Specialists voyage hosts are happy to help you get the most out of your cruise.
Plus, we offer a variety of amenities on hosted cruises. Besides special group pricing and tour dollars, our commemorative gifts are special mementos to remember your cruise.
