Love is contagious at The Cruise Web offices. Last month our recruiter tied the knot and now we have two employees that have each gotten engaged (not to each other though). [Read more →]

Last month we held The Cruise Web’s annual holiday party in our new office! We couldn’t have asked for a better environment to enjoy our co-workers as friends and to celebrate a successful year. Most importantly, it gave all of us the opportunity to show our awesome new office to our loved ones! (There’s nothing wrong with a little bragging.)
With holiday music playing in the air and hot snacks on the table, holiday cheer wasn’t hard to find. It was a fantastic time for all and you could tell by the laughs and warm conversation that filled the room.
Our President, Frans Hansen, gave a wonderful toast, congratulating our team for accomplishing our goal of providing top-notch service to our clients, while growing our company to what it has become today. Everyone agrees and is proud to be a part of The Cruise Web. [Read more →]

On Wednesday, August 10th, The Cruise Web was treated to a barbecue by Bob Rose, Business Development Manager for Royal Caribbean International. The barbecue, which celebrated the long and prosperous relationship between The Cruise Web and Royal Caribbean, allowed all members of The Cruise Web team to enjoy a beautiful summer day.
Bob Rose arranged for Steve Kevan, Pit Master for Hi-I-Que Barbecue Catering, to bring his impressive truck-pulled barbecue pit to The Cruise Web parking lot. As The Cruise Web waited patiently, the smell of pulled pork, roasted chicken and potato salad filled the air around the business complex. When it came time to dig-in, no one had to be asked twice. In short time, all that remained were empty plates, full bellies and messy hands – the best evidence of a successful barbecue. [Read more →]

Last month, The Cruise Web’s Manager of Client Services and Group Administration, Julie Atkins, had a chance to take a much deserved break from work and see Bermuda with her daughter. After returning to the office, Julie was nice enough to share about her experience:
“I came across a great deal on the Enchantment of the Seas sailing roundtrip from Baltimore, MD at the beginning of July. Since it was leaving from Baltimore to Bermuda, I thought it would be a great idea to get away for a short 5 night break with my 3 year old daughter – and since we live in Maryland it had more appeal as we didn’t need flights.

Karolina Shenton, The Cruise Web’s Manager of Marketing and Sales Operations, recently returned from an inaugural celebration aboard the brand new Seabourn Quest. Fortunately, we were able to steal enough of Karolina’s time to have her tell us about her inaugural experience, first-hand:
“I recently had the opportunity to experience Seabourn’s newest ship the Quest, on her inaugural voyage from Rome (Civitavecchia) to Monte Carlo. What made this voyage even more exciting was that my mom flew in from Poland to join me!
There we were, mother and daughter aboard one of the most beautiful and well appointed ships at sea. When I first boarded, I was taken by the red carpet and champagne welcome we received by the amazing staff. Not only were we told where to find our suite; a staff member personally escorted us there. In all my cruising, that is the first time I’ve had a personal escort to my suite. [Read more →]

By Jennifer Crivelli, Senior Cruise Consultant, The Cruise Web.
What happens when you can’t find a friend or family member to share a stateroom with you on your cruise vacation? Consider taking the cruise by yourself.
This past December, I was in this exact situation. I held a reservation on a 12-night Caribbean cruise on Azamara Club Cruises’ Azamara Journey and found myself without anyone to travel with me. I needed a vacation, so instead of canceling my trip, I decided to go on the cruise by myself. Having never cruised alone before, I had some concerns that I know many cruisers have when it comes to sailing by yourself. Who will I eat dinner with? Will I have fun? Is it safe to explore the ports of call by myself? [Read more →]

Saturday April 2nd, The Cruise Web Management team traveled to Summit Point Motorsports Park in West Virginia to test their karting skills on the region’s best racetrack. The idea came to Frans shortly after he won NASA (National Auto Sport Association) National Championship.
The Management Race began at 1 PM sharp with a safety video that made it clear that we were taking our lives into our own hands by karting. Fortunately, this message did not scare off a single manager, so we all donned our jumpsuits, were fitted for headsocks and helmets and hit the racetrack. [Read more →]
