February 26, 2015 // Franchising.com // Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – Leading home-based travel franchise CruiseOne®, which is part of World Travel Holdings - the world's largest cruise agency and award-winning leisure travel company, has launched its Elite Customer Recognition Program to thank its top customers for their patronage. In 2015, approximately 10 CruiseOne customers will be inducted into its Elite Customer Recognition Program and receive an exclusive gift of appreciation for their longstanding business and loyalty.
CruiseOne executives will be traveling around the country hosting private receptions for these elite customers and their agents. The first event took place in Houston with three customers being honored. Upcoming receptions will take place in South Florida, Los Angeles, Cleveland and Washington, D.C.
"In addition to providing superior customer service, the secret to building lifelong loyal customers and increasing referrals is through developing strong relationships," said Debbie Fiorino, senior vice president of CruiseOne. "Many times people never get to meet their home-based travel agent in person even though they may work together for many years. This new program is one way we are bringing our franchisees together with their clients to strengthen their relationships."
Number of cruise bookings and overall annual spend were evaluated to determine who would be inducted into the Elite Customer Recognition program. CruiseOne values all of its customers and recognizes them throughout the year with exclusive promotional offerings that cannot be found elsewhere.
