Sabre enhances cruise booking tool

Sabre Travel Network is making new enhancements to its highly efficient
cruise shopping and booking tool, Sabre Cruises, specifically tailored
to boost business performance for luxury and home-based travel agents.

  “No matter what travel segment agents target, Sabre Travel Network
is committed to being there both with the technology and services as
well as the training and information about the industry they need to
keep their customers satisfied and ensure a successful business,” said
Lee Rosen, president of TRAMS and vice president of the Sabre Travel
Network leisure segment. “We believe, and feedback from the agency
community confirms, that part of the path to continued relevance of
the agency community and success of their business is industry
knowledge, coupled with appropriately leveraged technology, marketing
services and networking opportunities.

  The latest enhancements announced today focus on leisure offerings
for cruise bookings, which continue to gain in appeal, as well as the
number of offerings from the cruise industry. Rosen’s remarks were
made as part of the 2007 Luxury Travel Expo and Home Based Travel
Agent Expo and Conference in Las Vegas this week.

  The new enhancements to Sabre Cruises bring value to agents by
improving online cruise shopping capabilities, comprehensive passenger
services, and integrated customer relationship management.
