Carnival Cruise Line Excellence Awards
We have enjoyed a strong partnership with Carnival for many years and the collaboration between our two companies continues to strengthen and grow.

World Travel Holdings, the world’s largest cruise agency and award-winning leisure travel company, has been recognized with Carnival Cruise Line’s 2016 Ted Arison Founder’s Award, the line’s newest and most prestigious award as part of the company’s annual Excellence Awards.

The Ted Arison Founder’s Award is named after Carnival's founder, the late Ted Arison and honors a travel partner who has consistently demonstrated tremendous partnership, loyalty and support for the Carnival brand and upholds Ted Arison's vision that everyone deserves a great cruise vacation.

“Receiving Carnival’s first-ever Ted Arison Founder’s Award is such an outstanding honor,” said Jeff Tolkin, co-chairman/CEO of World Travel Holdings. “We have enjoyed a strong partnership with Carnival for many years and the collaboration between our two companies continues to strengthen and grow.”

“We have formed more than a business partnership with Carnival, we have formed friendships with the people on their team,” said Brad Tolkin, co-chairman/CEO of World Travel Holdings. “In fact, we are looking forward to hosting our Dream Vacations/CruiseOne franchisees and Cruises Inc. independent agents onboard the Carnival Vista in December for the division’s annual National Conference.”

Fifteen top travel agencies in the U.S and Canada are the recipients of this year's Excellence Awards. These travel agencies were selected by Carnival's sales leadership team because they demonstrated sales effectiveness, innovative marketing techniques, brand advocacy and effective leadership.

"Through the years, World Travel Holdings has consistently shown us how committed they are to selling the Carnival experience our founder Ted Arison set out to create," said Carnival's Vice President of Sales and Trade Marketing Adolfo Perez. "We are thrilled to honor them with this prestigious award and look forward to many more years of continued partnership with their talented team."

This year’s honorees and their guests will attend an “Excellence Awards” celebration in Miami Beach, Fla. from Sept. 20-22, 2016, with complimentary airfare and hotel accommodations. Various events will be hosted by Carnival’s leadership team including a welcome party and a gala awards reception with dinner and dancing.
