The Cruise Web was recently honored at the 2018 World’s Leading Cruise Lines Excellent Awards, where Holland America Line, Princess Cruises and Carnival Cruise Line recognized some of the top travel agencies. The Cruise Web proudly accepted the Eastern Region Excellence Award from Holland America Line.

“Travel agents play a most critical role in helping their clients who become our guests choose the right cruise line and even the right ship and itinerary through listening to where they want to go, what types of experiences they want from their vacation and what best resonates with them concerning the many things that help create those experiences,” said Arnold Donald, president and CEO of Carnival Corporation. “I am honored to join our three largest North American cruise brands for the Excellence Awards, which recognize the travel partners who help us exceed our guests’ expectations through their understanding of their clients and through their loyalty, hard work, dedication and creativity.”

The Cruise Web Raises Over $2k for Local Charity

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

This holiday season, The Cruise Web team decided to give back to the community by raising money for a local charity. Over the course of four weeks, The Cruise Web team raised over $2,350 for Stepping Stones – a local shelter that provides support for families with children. Stepping Stones houses up to 6 families at one time and houses approximately 30 families per year. However, Stepping Stones doesn’t simply provide shelter, they also provide job training and other essential aid to help families thrive when they leave the shelter.

Over $1,100 was raised by The Cruise Web’s employees, which was generously matched by the company – resulting in over $2,350 worth of goods for the shelter! The funds were used to purchase many urgent need items for Stepping Stones. During the holiday season, many people donate food or toys, which are essential, but sometimes other everyday supplies can be forgotten.

Some of the items purchased were Ziploc bags, diapers, bed sheets, aluminum foil, snacks, pillows, laundry detergent, kitchen sponges, paper plates, toilet paper, blankets, cleaning supplies, tissues, food items, and much more!

Some of the items generously donated by The Cruise Web to the Stepping Stones charity.

The Cruise Web’s Sales Recruiter Ties the Knot

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

On March 30, 2012, Dennard Melton, Sales Recruiter for The Cruise Web, was wed to Christina Nochera in an intimate wedding in Baltimore, MD. The wedding was followed by a reception in the Capital Grille’s elegant Johns Hopkins dining room.

The newlyweds left the next day to celebrate their honeymoon with, you guessed it, a cruise! And what could be better to follow an intimate wedding than a cruise with nearly 2,500 of their “closest” friends? The couple’s honeymoon cruise departed from Baltimore and sailed to Port Canaveral before making its way to Nassau and CocoCay in the Bahamas. Highlights from their cruise include the surprise “Romance Package” provided by their friends at The Cruise Web and the romantic horse and buggy ride in Nassau.

Congratulations to the newlyweds! We wish you all the best.

The Cruise Web Hosts “Potluck-O-Gold” St. Patrick’s Day Luncheon

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

On March 20, 2012, The Cruise Web hosted a “Potluck-O-Gold” luncheon to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! The celebration may have come a few days late, but you wouldn’t have known based on the office atmosphere. In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, employees prepared and contributed their best green and gold dishes. Throughout the luncheon, our judging panel sampled each dish in order to determine the best green dish and best gold dish at the event. After much deliberation, the panel named the winners…

The winner of the “Best Green Dish” award was Mike Harris for his green buffalo chicken dip. The “Best Gold Dish” award went to Janie Monier for her chipotle jalapeño spoon bread. Both dishes were huge hits and earned their chefs Visa gift cards. Congratulations to Mike and Janie!

While Mike and Janie may have been the only ones to take home awards, all of the dishes were excellent and, in reality, everyone wins when The Cruise Web holds a potluck. [Read more →]
