Virtuoso is what’s called a “travel consortia”, something very similar to a special club for top travel agencies. Virtuoso membership is by invitation only and represents the top 5% of luxury travel agencies worldwide.
Cruise Specialists is very proud of our decades long Virtuoso membership.
What is really significant for Cruise Specialists clients are the complimentary Virtuoso Voyager Club benefits we can provide you at no charge because we belong to Virtuoso.
While the benefits can vary by sailing the Voyager Club often includes:
- A dedicated onboard host who will be available throughout your sailing.
- A private welcome-aboard cocktail reception where your host will introduce you to fellow Voyager Club travelers, helping to make connections and build friendships.
- The camaraderie of fellow cruisers, which enhances every experience, from delicious meals to unparalleled shore experiences.
- An exclusive shore excursion, such as VIP access to a venue, performance, or experience not available to the general public, or a full-day event that immerses you in local culture. Your travel Advisor can also arrange an alternative experience, like a special gift or shipboard credit on select dates.
- Access to our car and driver program on select Voyager Club sailings for more flexibility. Use your private car and driver to explore a different destination at your own pace.
What is the difference between a Cruise Specialists Hosted Voyage and a Virtuoso Voyage Club Cruise?
The answer is filled with good news because under either circumstance you are given complimentary, special benefits that are not available to most of the other passengers travelling along with you on your cruise.
Our Cruise Specialists Hosted Voyages comprise a dozen or so of the most popular long duration cruises we offer – World Cruises on Holland America Line, Silversea, and Crystal Cruises – along with voyages of a month or more that explore one of more continents in-depth.
Virtuoso Voyage Club cruises number in the hundreds, covering every continent, time of the year and duration running from as short as 8 days.
