At this year’s event, we’re excited to present a preview of Amadeus Total Cruise, our new cruise booking tool. It’s more than just a booking engine. It really is a total cruise management tool, with reporting capabilities and a variety of helpful administrative features.
I started my career in the travel business working in a cruise-only travel agency. Back then, the only way we made cruise bookings was by calling the cruise lines. Can you imagine having to call multiple cruise lines just to get pricing? Looking back, it was a giant waste of time. That’s why one of my favorite features in Amadeus Total Cruise is our comparison feature. You can select multiple sailings from different cruise lines, and compare them all on one page. You can even email that page to your client. What a time saver!
Amadeus Total Cruise has so many other neat and time-saving features, too. Helpful alerts on your home screen let you know when there’s a booking that requires your attention. Easy-to-read interactive deck plans have a flashing indicator, so you can quickly identify available cabins. Another one of my favorites is the upsell feature. A simple cheat sheet in the cabin selection screen does the math for you, and makes it easy to locate better cabins for your clients, giving you the opportunity to earn more commission.
If you don’t know much about a particular port of call, our extensive port information makes you a quick expert on the area. Can’t find your customer’s loyalty number? No problem! Just as you can today in Amadeus Cruise, you can use our past passenger lookup tool to find it. And for agencies who book a lot of groups, Amadeus Total Cruise returns group rates, so you can easily book into your group space.
Amadeus Total Cruise is great for agents of all levels. Whether you book one cruise a month or one every hour, Amadeus Total Cruise gives you everything you need to be a cruise-selling wizard. If only this booking tool had been around back when I was a travel agent. The absolute best part is that Amadeus Total Cruise is free!
