About Cruise Brothers

Cruising Free was founded in 2010 and is the host agency division of the well-known Cruise Brothers Travel Agency founded in 1972, created on the belief that travelers can become travel agents.


Cruising Free is completely free to join because we seek those with a passion for leisure travel and cruising, are the "go to" for their family, friends or organization and want to learn how to create a home-based business easily whether keeping it simple or creating large groups or family reunions AND getting paid for it.


We've designed a proprietary intranet and education program led by a team of coaches or "Team Leaders" who are your personal guides from the day you begin. We do this because we know people joining us are new and want to do this part-time to earn money, save on travel and potentially earn free travel and cruises for the planning they are already doing. Of course we find that for some their passion turns into a full-time business and all this at no cost to you!
