Inactive Franchise Profile — Cruise Holidays

Based on our research, this is no longer an active franchise opportunity. Please contact us if franchises are still available.

Cruise Holidays is a chain of cruise travel agency services and is North America's largest cruise-travel franchise, with 170+ franchises currently. Cruise Holidays was founded in 1984 and acquired by Carlson Travel Network Associates, Inc., one of the world's largest travel franchisers.

Cruise travel has been growing at an average rate of 8.4% since 1980, and approximately 84 million passengers have taken a cruise of 2 days or more.

Cruise Holidays offers franchisees sales support via a toll-free call, an extranet site available 24/7, and proprietary software called CruiseWeb which manages all of the cruise reservation processes, and provides a wide array of financial reports and mailing list management.

Small business, sales, and marketing experience is beneficial to a potential franchisee, but not essential.

$30,000 is the initial franchise fee, with an additional initial investment (including the initial franchise fee) ranging from $78,169 to $136,719. An existing independent cruise-only travel agency carries an estimated initial investment of $4,419 to $18, 969.
