(franchise opportunity overview continues below)

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.
