Vacation.com Names Cruise.com Agency of the Year 2011

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, July 05, 2011 - For the third year in a row, Cruise.com was recognized by Vacation.com, North America's leading travel services marketing organization, as the winner of the Chairman's Award, for the highest preferred supplier sales. The award was presented at the 5th annual Power of the Partnership (POP) awards, during last week's General Session, at the 13th International Conference and Trade Show.

"The agencies we honored deserve to be recognized for their outstanding achievements over the course of the past year," said Vacation.com Vice President of Canada Christine James. "The personal service they provide to their clients, along with their ability to create unique vacation experiences, propelled them to the top of our list of more than 5,100 travel agency members throughout the United States and Canada."

"I accept this award on behalf of all the dedicated members of our staff at Cruise.com. Our team's commitment to excellence and service are the cornerstone to our success," said Anthony Hamawy, President, Cruise.com.

Cruise.com offers comprehensive itineraries, at the most competitive prices, for more than 70 cruise lines worldwide. Offering advanced search and booking technology, greater content and discount prices (lower than all other major cruise sellers) provides Cruise.com with the leading edge. Cruise.com's team of cruise specialists provides the highest level of traditional personal service on every booking.

In recent months, Cruise.com began broadening their product line with the launch of three new brands that include: www.HomesandVillasInternational.com a vacation rental program offering full serviced, and self-catering, luxurious accommodations in Manors, Castles, Cottages, Luxury Estates, Villas, Private Homes, and Apartments in Great Britain, Ireland, Scotland, and Mexico, with more destinations to come. In addition, the team is building pre- and post- cruise stays, land packages, and custom tours through the new www.TourDeals.com and www.LuxuryTravelTeam.com brands.
