Cheap Tickets has added direct online cruise booking capability to its Web site as a complement to its previous telephone-only cruise booking option.
Cheap Tickets` online customers may now select from nearly 13,000 sailings, some priced at more than 50% off published brochure rates, departing through June 2003. Passengers may choose from more than 80 ports of embarkation to popular destinations like Alaska, Australia, the Baltic, Bermuda, the Caribbean, China, the Mediterranean, Mexico and South America.
Cheap Tickets` collection of cruises range in duration from one to 30 days, on more than 80 ships representing nine top cruise lines—Carnival, Celebrity, Crystal, Disney, Holland America, Norwegian, Princess, Royal Caribbean, and Windstar. In addition to booking, customers may also access detailed descriptions of the ships, and make stateroom selections through Cheap Tickets. Each itinerary on the site also provides the traveler with thorough information regarding each port-of-call, including local interests, activities, and events—plenty of information to plan the dream cruise vacation.
Founded in 1986, Cheap Tickets was acquired by Cendant Corporation in October 2001 and is part of Cendant`s Travel Distribution Division, and operated by the company`s affiliate, Trip Network, Inc.
