Shopping with Sabre Cruises means clear sailing, more sales, higher commissions

Sabre Cruises helps you find and sort more information faster than any other cruise booking method. You will spend less time searching, and more time selling to and servicing your customers.

For example:

  • You simply start with your customer's most desired cruise dates. Sabre Cruises furnishes you with a number of options, including a listing of all the available cruises with dates closest to the ones you want.

  • When your customer specifies a particular cruise line or ship name, you can easily drill deeper with Sabre Cruises, putting all your cruise options on a single screen, and at your fingertips, faster.

  • If price is important (and when isnít it?), Sabre Cruises has no equal. You can, for example, compare the pricing of different cruise options without having to "re-start" the entire booking process every time a new price is needed.

  • Sabre Cruises also gives you single-screen access to more detailed ship and vendor offerings. Need transfer options? Itís right there. How about customized diets and special amenities? No problem. Just ask Sabre Cruises. Start "up selling" your clients and increasing commissions like never before.

Sabre Cruises is a browser based product that provides travel agencies with a comprehensive solution for automating the cruise sales process, from planning to booking. Sabre Cruises eliminates the need for agents to learn cryptic keystroke commands, streamlining even the most complex cruise bookings.

As cruise travel continues to grow in the United States and abroad, agencies are focusing on this important travel segment as a way to generate high margin costs. Sabre Cruises user friendly, point and click technology helps these agencies maximize their revenue potential with a productivity enhancing solution that lets front office agents focus more on marketing the cruise vacation package.

The software has easy to read availability screens that provide a wealth of information about a cruise vacation package, including cabin and dining room availability, deck plans and cabin photos. The single screen availability feature also enables agents to quickly compare multiple cruise line information on one screen, saving time in calling the cruise lines. The product is integrated within the Sabre Travel Network System, allowing agents to also book air, car, hotel and other travel services at the same time.

With the new Sabre Cruises booking engine platform, agents can shop and book cruises instantly via real time access. Agents can book all the major cruise lines in a few easy steps.

1) Select a cruise sailing (by cruise line, departure date, price)

2) Select the room category (compare by price)

3) Select the cabin (deck maps make it easy)

4) Select dining preferences (seatings by time, table size)

5) Select options (add trip protection insurance, shore excursions)

In addition to the powerful cruise booking engine, Sabre Cruises offers a number of special features designed to make it easier for agents to market and sell cruises.
