Human Resource Departments Can Now Add Cruise Discounts to Their Employee Benefits Package at No Cost to The Company

Share Article

My Cruise, a cruise only travel agency, is now offering companies with more than 500 employees their own private label cruise travel booking web site, which will allow their employees to book cruise travel at substantial savings. There is no cost to the company and the rates quoted on the company's cruise travel site are guaranteed to be 7% less than any cruise line directly and less than Travelocity, Expedia, Orbitz and Yahoo Travel. *

My Cruise currently provides cruise discount sites for the American Congress of Employers, many state government unions, teachers unions, Fortune 500 companies, and the U.S. Military. The human resource departments of these companies and organizations recognize the value of cruise discounts to their members as a real benefit they can use right now, not just when they are sick or retire. A young staff may be less interested in retirement plans than it is in saving money on their next summer vacation. Our employee benefit members typically save between $50 and $350 per cabin, depending on the cost of their cruise.

The cruise rates offered by online travel agencies such as Travelocity, Expedia, Orbitz, and Yahoo are actually the same as those offered by the cruise lines. Moreover, those agencies have their own service, shipping, change, or cancellation fees in addition to the cruise lines own fees. My Cruise Club is a no-fee agency and will never charge clients any sort of fee at any time.

Companies can simply add a link to their Intranet to allow the employee to access the unique cruise booking web site set up for them. Employees would be able to search for and book a cruise on any cruise line at the 7% discounted rate. In contrast with complicated and costly point-based travel incentive programs now offered by a few companies to their employees, this benefit is free and easy.

A study sponsored by Cruise Lines International Association found that more than nine million North Americans vacationed aboard cruise ships in 2005, while nearly 30 million say they will likely take a cruise vacation within the next three years and almost 70 million Americans would like to take a cruise in the next five years. Why do so many people find cruising so appealing? A cruise offers all the things most people want in a vacation -- romance, excitement, relaxation, adventure, escape, discovery, luxury; value and more -- without the hassles nobody wants. There are many Carnival and Royal Caribbean Cruises which can cost under $400 per person and 5 star luxury cruise lines which can cost well over $4000 per person.

My Cruise is headquartered in Walker Minnesota and has affiliate offices in Los Angeles, California and Fort Myers, Florida. Since 2001, My Cruise has earned a reputation for being the cruise experts who offer reliable customer service 7 days a week and substantial employee benefit discounts, with no fees.

  • Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruise Lines, do not allow direct discounting. For these cruise lines, My Cruise Club will contribute the 7% discount amount towards insurance, on-board credit or shore excursions.
