Fort Myers, FL (March 6, 2014)—Fort Myers-area residents interested in learning about the wide variety of cruise options available to them are invited to attend one of 16 individual sessions offered through eight participating cruise lines at All Aboard Travel, Southwest Florida’s premier cruise and tour package agency, March 10-14. The free events will occur at All Aboard Travel’s headquarters, located at 12530 World Plaza Lane #1 in Fort Myers, FL. The travel agency will feature representatives from ocean and river cruise lines for intimate presentations highlighting the industry’s newest, most innovative ships, fascinating cruise itineraries and more. The events are open to the public, but advance registration is required – by calling 800-741-1770 – and space is very limited, with a maximum of 12 attendees at each presentation.
“Due to the overwhelming popularity of our inaugural open house program last year, we are thrilled to announce another series of events – not only for our existing clients but anyone who has an interest in learning about cruising,” said Jody Ryland, Vice President, All Aboard Travel. “Space is filling up fast because people are excited to speak one-on-one with cruise line representatives, along with our expert agents, who can answer every question imaginable about cruising. Plus, all attendees will receive up to $750 off their next cruise vacation. After each presentation, they can sit down with our knowledgeable All Aboard Travel agents who can assist them in crafting the ideal, personalized cruise vacation and handle all of the details. This way, the client only needs to be concerned with what they will pack to take with them on their upcoming trip.”

Each open house will include a 30-minute presentation from a cruise line representative, plus ample time for questions and answers.

Ryland added that the open houses will fill up quickly, due in part to some major developments in the Florida cruise market this year. “Most notably, Norwegian Cruise Line’s sparkling new Norwegian Getaway is now based in Miami year-round. Because it is an easy drive to the port, summertime cruises are even more accessible to Southwest Florida residents. And for those who want to go further afield, the incredible excitement over European river cruising is generating interest in cruising like I’ve never seen before.”
