Federal Way, WA (PRWEB) August 1, 2006
World Voyager Vacations (http://www.worldvoyagervacations.com), a Federal Way-based leisure travel agency, today announced it has acquired Cruise Center of Puyallup.
The transaction will make World Voyager Vacations one of the largest cruise sellers in the south Puget Sound area. The sale was closed on June 13, 2006. Terms of the sale were not disclosed.
“World Voyager Vacations and the Cruise Center of Puyallup have long been each others biggest competition in the south end,” said Jerry Vaughn, president and founder of World Voyager Vacations. “We’ve watched each other’s success and look forward to combining strengths in an effort to provide our newly expanded customer base with the highest level of service.”
According to Vaughn, the longevity of Cruise Center in the South-End gives it deep roots in the community and compliments World Voyager Vacations’ local client base. In turn, World Voyager Vacations will expand its reach into Puyallup, one of the fastest growing areas in Pierce County.
“The Cruise Center has been in our family for more than 20 years, and we wouldn’t hand it over to just anyone,” said Brad Trout, former owner of Cruise Center of Puyallup. “We’re confident that we’re handing over the reins to the right leadership. World Voyager Vacations track record of success in the market reassures us that our clientele will receive the best possible service.”
Cruise Center of Puyallup will now be known as World Voyager Vacations Cruise Center. The store location will remain open and its employees will remain servicing clients.
