We like to say that our hosted cruises tours are like two fabulous vacations in one.
In addition to exploring some of the most fascinating destinations on earth, you get to travel among friends with a fun-loving host, enjoying the camaraderie of folks as passionate about travel as you are.
Cruise Specialists believes in being with our clients every step of the way and provided hosted cruises is one of the best ways we ensure your trip is a success!
On some of our most popular Hosted Voyages we have married couples who host the voyage, doubling the fun for our guests.
While you may have heard of hosted cruises, lots of clients are unaware of exactly what our onboard hosts do.
The best analogy may be what a superb dinner party host does – make sure all their guests have a fantastically enjoyable time, introduce guests to each other with common interests to spark friendships and make sure any problems are quickly and discreetly resolved.
Plus, unlike a dinner host, our Voyage Hosts are inveterate travelers who know the in’s and out’s of every one of the ports you are visiting on your vacation. You can rely on them to recommend the most authentic restaurants, special sites off the beaten path, stores with one of a kind local products and the like.
Here’s a few examples of services our Voyage Hosts can provide:
- Recommend which excursions are best values when purchased through the cruise line, another trusted local provider or best to do it “on your own”
- Secure hard to get specialty restaurant reservations
- Decide on the best value package for internet or other amenities
- Help you change tables or dinner seatings in the main dining room
- Lend you books exploring the cultures of the countries you are visiting
- Coordinate any changes to your home bound flight arrangements should you have the need arise
- Liaison with medical personnel onboard or onshore should you need medical attention
Our Voyage Hosts are well known by all the key onboard staff and officers and because Cruise Specialists is an important partner with the key cruise lines we represent their requests move to the top of the crew’s priority lists.
Once you experience a cruise with one of our delightful Voyage Hosts it’s likely you will decide it’s “the only way to go”.
Indeed when we announce an upcoming cruise will be hosted by one of our Voyage Hosts we frequently get a rush of new bookings from among their many fans worldwide.
Most of our hosted voyages are noted, but ask our team to find one!
