HOPE MILLS, NC – July 5 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Whether you’re planning a wedding, family reunion, convention or group vacation, chances are you’ll want to host your event on a cruise ship if Travel Agent Davedda Smith has anything to say about it. She’s been busy booking group cruises by touting the incredible value customers receive onboard.

A home-based Independent Travel Agent through mega-host Global Travel International (GTI) of Maitland, Florida, Smith is happy to have found her niche in the travel market.

“I love selling group cruises. People have such a great time and they always come back with a smile on their face. The benefits of group cruising are incredible,” says Smith.

“While all your meals, snacks, beverages, entertainment and shipboard activities are usually included on just about any cruise ship afloat, groups receive a few enticing extras. Some of the cruise lines offer groups special discounted rates, an onboard complimentary cocktail party, complimentary champagne and chocolates, a free group photo and depending on the size of the group, free meeting rooms. The cruise line will also seat the entire group together, as opposed to dining separately when clients book the same cruise individually.”

Smith attributes her success to being affiliated with such a large player in the travel industry. GTI’s relationship with top suppliers in the cruise world, including Carnival Cruise Lines, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines and Celebrity Cruise Lines, built throughout 12 years of success and more than 35,000 Independent Travel Agents, allows GTI Travel Agents like herself to have access to great prices that she in turn can offer to her clients.

“Cruising is such a great way for people to enjoy each other,” says Davedda Smith. “They can be together as much as they want, and go off on their own too. Just about everything’s included in one price; you only have to unpack once; and you get to share beautiful, exotic destinations and delicious, gourmet meals together. It’s the perfect choice for a group vacation or convention.

“Groups perfect for group cruising include business seminars, weddings, family reunions, high school reunions, church group/synagogue, corporate incentives, family and friends, senior club/organization, bachelor/bachelorette parties, nonprofit organizations, men’s/women’s groups, client appreciation, sports team, spring break student groups and more.
