I started with Cruise Planners in May 2019. I was very new to the industry. (I had started with another home-based company approximately 8 months prior, but received minimal support. In those 8 months, I only had a handful of bookings, and several of them were my own.) While attending the CLIA conference in April of 2019, I saw alot of people wearing the "CP green" shirts. So, I started asking some of them about Cruise Planners. Every single person I spoke with said they absolutely LOVED Cruise Planners and they were very happy with their decision to join the CP family. After more research, I decided to make the switch. I am extremely happy that I did! The support I've received in my first year with Cruise Planners has been fantastic. The technology is state of the art. My coaches have been very responsive to my TONS of questions. In addition, having access to the CP Facebook page has allowed me to obtain a significant amount of information from my colleagues. (Being able to ask a question on our Facebook page and immediately receive a number of responses is very helpful.) The Home Office is very responsive to feedback and to our individual needs. I truly feel that the Home Office wants me to succeed. I set a goal for myself to make the company's Top 50 list within my first five years. I was able to accomplish my goal within my first year- even with the COVID situation in full swing! I am happy to answer any questions you may have about the Cruise Planners opportunity.

I started with Cruise Planners in 2011, and it has been the best decision I have ever made. Cruise Planners lets us operate our agencies exactly the way we want (within guidelines, of course), and it's this flexibility that has helped me create a business that has been meaningful and lucrative. Most folks want to retire from work as soon as possible. With this Cruise Planners franchise, I can continue to work as long as I want, fashioning the business to my particular needs. Fabulous tools are provided to us, not to mention beautiful websites, constant communication, and a team of people who truly care. Cruise Planners is THE BEST.

I've been with Cruise Planners for nine years. During the COVID-19 pandemic Cruise Planners has been an exceptional host, offering support via frequent videos, zoom meetings, coaching calls, and email communication -- all chock full of ideas on how to stay on track. I simply can't imagine being with anybody else right now, especially a "big box" agency. Cruise Planners has integrity, sensitivity, marketing savvy, and heart, and now more than ever I know I chose the right franchise.

Signing up with cruise planners has been the best decision I have ever made. The training and support is fantastic. The coaches and office staff are always there to help, and if they can't, they find the answer for you. My bookings have grown in such a short time. If you are thinking about it, do it.

I needed something to do after my construction accident, we found Cruise Planers and it has been one of the most and rewarding things we have ever done. the training, coaches, technology, and home all are great. Any questions can get answered in a day most of the time by coaches. The home office is fantastic, could not ask for more.

I was completely new to the travel industry when I bought my Cruise Planners franchise almost 8 years ago. I'm now selling close to 2 million dollars a year. I think the tools that Cruise Planners gives it's franchisees is what made that possible.

While I work very hard - any business owner has to in order to be successful - Cruise Planners has so many programs in place to help you succeed. They're not going to give you clients, that's your job, but they have a lot of marketing tools that can help you bring in clients. You can build a business from scratch and learn everything you need to know about the travel business if you take advantage of what they have to offer.

I'm so grateful it was the choice I made back in 2016. I could not be happier. They're also very nice, trustworthy people and I believe they truly care about our success.

I bought my franchise after retiring but not ready to stop working. Cruise Planners gave me all of the tools, training and skills to be a successful franchise. They are so known and respected in the industry. If you say you are with Cruise Planners the suppliers know you are to be taken seriously. They constantly are revamping tools and technology to make your life easier. I would never go anywhere else!

I joined Cruise Planners in 2016 after working with a host agency for a year. I was looking for an agency with excellent marketing and technology. I found this with Cruise Planners! They have excellent technology that saves me hours of time weekly with the social media program and there award winning group programs and reservation system and preferred suppliers relationships and higher commission. Their training is wonderful and they have many courses you can take to continue your education. I have learned so much about the travel industry with Cruise Planners and so glad I decided to go with them!

I started as an associate with a franchise of Cruise Planners back in 2019 before the pandemic hit. I didn't make any sales in 2020 and it wasn't until 2022 when I started really focusing on this work. I sold less than $600 my first year of doing this basically part to full time, and just this year alone have sold over $65k in travel. Cruise Planners has all the best technology, support, commission rates, and training. I truly feel proud to work for such an amazing company that is always staying one step ahead of the travel trends. I've learned so much through the company's trainings, their weekly Live zooms, and just from the CP community. CP Green is famous and it's wonderful to work for a company that people know about or at least have heard of.

I joined Cruise Planners in 1998 after being with a smaller company for 9 years that merged with another company. I have been thrilled with this company ever since. They have never failed to help me and guide me and support me for the last 25 years, and I couldn't be happier. My husband and partner and I joined together until his death in 2021, after which I became the sole franchisee. When he died I received tremendous support and caring from top management on down. Everyone was so nice to me and so patient with me as I took up my husband/partner's part of the business and continued on as a sole proprieter. It was very difficult going through Covid, but they were always there to help, and I am well on my way to having one of my best years ever. The helpful advice I have received enabled me to continue to do my best and be my best. I couldn't be with a better company or better people than I am now.
