Cruise charter firm opens call center for Christian travelers

Premier Christian Cruises, a charter cruise outfit, launched a travel office to cater specifically to the needs of Christian cruise travelers and other cruise-related companies and ministry efforts, the company said.

"Most cruise companies use travel agencies to field incoming calls. When a potential customer calls, they aren't actually speaking to the cruise company," notes Jonathan Martin, PCC's vice president of operations. "That's where we differ from most travel agencies. Our travel office staff understands the Christian travel marketplace and the needs of the Christian consumer."

Martin credits the early sales success of the Music Boat 2007 cruise, which has sold 50% of its cabins in 11 days, to PCC's travel office representatives. He added that PCC has experienced "phenomenal growth" for the three full-ship charters that it currently offers: the Girls Get-A-Way cruise (Nov. 9 to 13), K-LOVE's Friends & Family Music cruise (Jan. 22 to 26) and The Music Boat (April 30 to May 4).

The travel office call center, which can be reached at (800) 889-5265, offers extended hours Mondays to Thursdays 7 a.m. to midnight, Fridays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
