Passport Online is white-labeling a version of its cruise booking engine for Virtuoso after the tool was refined in the Virtuoso Incubator program.

The cruise booking engine, the Virtuoso Cruise Tool, will enable agents to find, compare, quote and book cruises from Virtuoso.com. ClientBase Live Connect integration is possible with the tool, which also has reporting and marketing capabilities, booking modification abilities and information on cruises, including cabin availability, deck plans and ship information.

"The intuitive tool makes marketing and selling cruises quicker, simpler and more effective, giving Virtuoso's advisers a competitive edge by rapidly increasing their cruise knowledge and response time to clients," Virtuoso said.

According to Virtuoso, the new tool was added to its suite of technology capabilities after agents said they wanted a tool enabling them to find, compare and book cruises from Virtuoso.com.

The Virtuoso Cruise Tool comes out of the Virtuoso Incubator, a program that vets technology companies and introduces its tools to a group of agents who test them and provide feedback. That enabled the creation of this version of Passport Online's cruise booking tool, which is tailored to Virtuoso.

The tool is available to Virtuoso members in the U.S. and Canada. Virtuoso plans to offer it to agents in other markets in the future.
