Minneapolis, MN (November 10, 2010)—Cruise Holidays, North America’s oldest cruise-specialty retail franchise, unveiled a distinguished list of members for its prestigious 2010 President’s Circle. The President’s Circle is made up of the top 17 Cruise Holidays stores and top three virtual offices (home-based franchise owners). The winners are chosen on the basis of the business’s revenue as well as year-over-year growth.

"Technically speaking, our President’s Circle is a strict interpretation of our franchise owners’ revenue and growth, but more importantly, it’s essentially a barometer of who is reaching out to their clients in the most effective way and growing right along with their clients as they exceed their travel expectations,” said Mark Schiffner, vice president of Cruise Holidays.


All of these franchisees were honored at a special ceremony during the 2010 Cruise Holidays Annual Convention, which was held at El Dorado Royale Resort & Spa in Mexico’s Riviera Maya, near Cancun, November 1-6. To find a local cruise expert, please visit our agent locator
