02Cruise.com Introduces Powerful Online Cruise Search


has launched SureCruise(TM), an
advanced online search tool delivering the most powerful yet easy-to-use
cruise shopping experience available, on or off the Web. 
SureCruise is
available now at www.02Cruise.com/surecruise

  With a single click, Internet shoppers can confidently zero in on the best
pricing on cruise itineraries that meet their detailed personal preferences
from leading cruise lines, including: Carnival Cruise Lines, Costa Cruises,
Celebrity Cruises, Holland America, Norwegian Cruise Line, Princess Cruises,
Royal Caribbean Cruises and Windstar Cruises. Additional cruise lines will be
participating in SureCruise in the future.
Until now, it would be time consuming or practically impossible for cruise
shoppers to search out the most favorable deals that met their needs.
Existing online cruise search tools offer basic criteria limited to cruise
line, departure date, destination and length of cruise, and frequently require
tedious manual checking of each sailing date`s price.
SureCruise eliminates this frustration by pinpointing, on one Web page,
the best offers from each participating cruise line on inside, outside,
balcony and suite accommodations that meet shoppers` preferences.
Approximately 6,000 cruise departures can be searched in seconds on geographic
area, sailing date, duration, departure port, port of call, holiday sailings
and more.
02Cruise.com is currently ranked in the top one percent of travel
agencies, according to industry research from leading consortium Vacation.com


“02Cruise.com empowers vacationers with cruise shopping tools more powerful
than those available at most web sites, making it easy and quick to find the
right cruise at the best price, 24 hours a day,” said Michael Spinelli,
Vacation.com chairman emeritus and past president of the American Society of
Travel Agents.
A recent 02Cruise.com study showed that more than half of consumers shop
for cruise travel packages after work hours, when many travel agencies are
closed. 02Cruise.com gives cruise shoppers the ability to shop for cruise
vacations at their own convenience.
“Feedback from SureCruise testing has been extremely enthusiastic,” said
Evan Eggers, founder and president of 02Cruise.com. “People have emailed to
let us know, `it`s fantastic,` it helped them find `the best rates,` it`s
`fast and efficient,` and `this was fun.`”
