NEWS RELEASE

Unique Land Experiences Now Available in Popular Ports of Call Cities

February 3, 2015

San Jose, CAClassic Vacations, a leading provider of luxury wholesale travel, announced today the addition of pre- and post- cruise land packages now available through their website, dev.classicvacations.com. The Initial launch includes 45 port of call cities throughout Europe. Port of calls in Canada, the Caribbean, United States, Middle East, and the South Pacific are scheduled to launch later in 2015.

The pre- and post- cruise packages offer options such as transfers, tours, excursions, and accommodations available both before and after a cruise, safari, private yacht charter, or river cruise. Travel Advisors have three options in selecting a pre- or post- cruise package. They can either customize their own package through the online booking engine, contact a Classic Vacations’ Travel Sales Consultant to assist them, or select one of the ready-to-go packages available through Classic Vacations’ website. Based on the traveler’s budget, the pre-designed packages on the website are conveniently divided into three levels: Gold, Silver, and Bronze.

“Our new pre- and post- cruise options are perfect for Travel Advisors that want to create a unique and personalized land experience before or after a cruise,” said David Hu, President of Classic Vacations. “We have everything Travel Advisors need to enhance their clients’ trip, the possibilities are endless.”

In addition to Classic Vacations’ collection of luxury hotels, Travel Advisors will be able to choose from a handpicked selection of 3, 4, and 5 star hotels through the Expedia Affiliate Network, an extensive array of hotels from Expedia’s portfolio. Travel Advisors will also be able to select from either Classic Vacations' highly sought after preferred tours, or the tours available through Classic Vacations’ partner Viator, the largest provider of travel experiences worldwide.

Travel Advisors are encouraged to browse Classic Vacations’ Port of Call web pages to review the recommended hotel and land packages. Interactive maps, helpful travel tips, and area details are available for each Port of Call city. More information can be found here: http://dev.classicvacations.com/cruises/port-call-cities
