Our Company Goals
” Our Goal is to give guests a seamless land and sea experience with a wide variety of operational services in the Great Land.”
Delivering great customer service starts with understanding our customer! As a single tour operator working for multiple customers, our challenge is unique – we must deliver differentiated guest experiences from one, common tour company. This requires us to understand our client and guest expectations in order to fulfill the specific service requirements essential to each customer.
As an employee, your assignment is to provide excellent service while honoring the specific identity of each cruise line we serve.
Each employee is crucial to the success of our mission, providing excellent service unique for each guest. If you are not serving a guest directly, you are serving someone who is. Internal customer service is just as important to our Company’s success!
These elements provide the framework for our success and guide us in fulfilling our mission:
