“Over the years, Expedia Cruises Franchisees and Vacation Consultants have shown some of the most elevated levels of not only passion for cruising, but a love and devotion for every aspect of what a cruise vacation offers and how to best serve their customers. The care, advocacy and sincere interest they take to ensure every single client experiences the very best of each one of their cruises is truly admirable. All of us at Norwegian share this same philosophy, with the same passion for delivering excellence on every ship and every sailing. I believe this is the fundamental reason for the amazing collaboration and partnership that ties our two companies together. The Expedia leadership and corporate support team continues to show tremendous resiliency, determination, creativity and professionalism. I am grateful for the exceptional relationship we have with Expedia Cruises and thankful for all the support and trust they have in us, by sending their best customers on our wonderful cruises.”
