There was a movie a few years ago titled: "We Bought a Zoo." It starred Matt Damon and it told the story of a family that purchased a working zoo and all their trials and tribulations.
Nearly 30 years ago, Sharon and I bought a travel agency. And to say we really didn't know that much about the travel business would be an understatement. We certainly had our trials and tribulations.
One of our challenges was to build the business and client base. Every cruise line and tour operator told us that the best way to build our business was by developing groups. That's the "ticket" we were told.
The day we opened our agency, we did not have any group business. We were booking families to Disney or the Caribbean. We had couples cruising on Carnival or Royal Caribbean, but there was no group business.
It took time and it was a difficult process, but today, with special thanks to The Vegas Voyagers, a large percentage of our business is group travel. And on January 27th, we will escort the biggest group in our history.
We will sail on the Carnival Splendor on the PHAT PACK cruise with close to 200 passengers. The Phat Pack will give two “command” performances, host a karaoke session, conduct a music workshop and hold a “meet & greet” at our private cocktail party. It is going to be an outstanding fun-filled cruise.
Here's the good news - for those who have not yet booked and might still be interested in attending, there is still some space available. Call for details.
Please be aware however, that if you want to participate in the Phat Pack events described above you must book through The Vegas Voyagers. These events are strictly private and not open to any other passengers on the ship.
It seems we have come full circle. From a travel agency that, new nothing about promoting group travel, to 200 "Vegas Voyager Phat Packers." We couldn't have done it without you - our readers.
We look forward to welcoming you on board… and many more years of Vegas Voyager group travel.
