See the World


Travel Weekly and Crossroads continually run fam trip offers for agents.

Some provide a special per-night rate at a new hotel, others offer deep discounts for week-long trips to exotic destinations.

In one recent news story, TW told its readers about a quite unusual fam offer.

The World Cruise Co., in Toronto, is holding 10 cabins on its around-the-world itinerary for retailers who can take advantage of a 25% discount.

With a regular cruise fare of $16,000, the offer would give agents a chance to travel the world for three months at a cost of $12,000.

An earlier report in TW referred to the proliferation of around-the-world operators springing up in San Francisco.

Operators interviewed for that story said it is becoming more acceptable for people to take a leave of absence from their jobs and set off on a global adventure.

If any of you decide to take the World Cruise Co. up on its offer, we'd love to hear from you upon your return -- make that if you return.

I hear Tahiti is lovely anytime of year.
