Princess Cruises added features to its Polar Online booking engine, including deck plans, ship facts and itinerary maps.
The deck plan option enables agents to zoom into all public areas on a ship and view cabin layouts. The itinerary map shows a ship's route and arrival and departure times for each port of call. Ship facts detail dining options and activities, and a weather feature indicates temperature and precipitation details for all ports of call on the selected voyage.
"We know many agents have kept hard copies of these resources handy to help as they were completing their bookings, so we wanted to add them right into Polar Online so agents can now access these details right from their screens as they are speaking to their clients," said Jan Swartz, executive vice president of sales, marketing and customer service for Princess Cruises.
