Customize your “Welcome to the Industry” training program – You choose the Vacation Expert sessions to combine with the Essentials Course covering three general themes that all New Travel Agents should know – Travel Industry Basics, Travel Agency Red Tape, & Selling Vacations.

The Cruise Vacation Expert sessions include topics such as:
  • Talk Like a Sailor:  Cruise Vocab & Lingo for Travelers and Travel Agents

With our accreditation, you’re authorized to take additional training programs – such as Royal Caribbean University – which is a complimentary virtual program straight from the source.  These courses are only accessible to travel agents and will guide you through Royal Caribbean’s ships, amenities, destinations, etc.  You’ll get insider information on new products or promotions, authorized marketing material, and access to exclusive travel agent booking systems.
Experts don’t learn everything in books – and Cruise Vacation Experts typically cruise!  While a “free cruise” isn’t what you’re going to get, graduates of the University and sellers of Royal Caribbean are also eligible for exclusive travel agent offers and other perks!
And Royal Caribbean is just one example – Many cruise lines offer similar training programs and perks to their travel agent partners!  The Cruise Industry loves Travel Agents & we love them!
