Allow your customers to search, discover and book cruises through your travel platform.
The cruise platform provides a bespoke 24/7 live pricing and availability cruise booking platform built into your website.
While other cruise platforms direct customers away to third-party suppliers during the booking process, our market-leading technology gives customers a seamless experience by keeping them within your site for the entire booking journey. The platform is designed specifically for booking cruise. It is feature-rich and allows great functionality.
As the platform is built around our eVolve CMS your cruise platform will sit in your site compatible with other modules (including multi-lingual and multi-currency functionality).
We connect you to Tourico’s cruise inventory giving you access to all major cruise lines. You are also able to offer a variety of cruise types from round the world trips to river cruises and mini cruises. (Please enquire for Amadeus cruise inventory).
Cruise will fit seamlessly into your search box layouts. What you choose in the destination field determines the type of cruise the user is searching for. The suggestions can include continents, countries, regions (e.g. Mediterranean and South Pacific), as well as popular routes (e.g. Panama Canal and transatlantic).
Under ‘More Options’ you can select the cruise line, cruise ship and any valid concessions.
The results page contains cruise-specific filters and the cruise departure selections that match the criteria of the search. If a promotion is applied it will show below the departure date. The lead-in price of the available cabins on each departure are also shown.
The cruise results page is content rich with ship star rating and collapsible ship information. It’s also functional with a built-in collapsible itinerary (including an interactive Google Map), image gallery, comprehensive cruise amenities overview and the whole ship deck plan. The user can access all this information without leaving the page.
Upon selecting a cruise departure the user is brought to the cabin category selection stage. Any applicable cabin category promotions will also appear here. Each cabin category has a price and the selection boxes contain a written cabin description and price.
Selecting the collapsible ‘View Images and Facilities’ menu will display a detailed view of the ship amenities and a media gallery with enlargeable images.
Selecting view itinerary will provide an interactive Google Map within the collapsible menu as well as port departure and arrival times. Selecting a destination will also give a written description of its highlights.
Upon selecting a cabin category, the user is brought to the cabin selection stage. In addition to cabin information the user can also display the cancellation policy in detail, choose from available dining options, view the deck plan and select a particular cabin.
Throughout the booking journey, the customer is always presented with a cruise overview and price breakdown in a ‘Cruise Details’ panel to the left. Extra costs (such as exclusive dining options) will appear here.
After cabin selection, the customer is directed to the excursions overview and passenger details stage. We integrate with ShoreFox who provide excursions for cruise destinations. The user will be able to see how many excursions are available for this particular cruise. They can also open a collapsible excursion details menu with excursion information (including promotions) for each destination on the cruise route.
Underneath the excursions menu is the passenger details entry. Entering these will take the user to the summary and payment details stage.
The summary and payment details stage is the basket page. The user is given a quotable order number and the order can be viewed and amended from the eVolve CMS in the Order Management. Just as with flight and accommodation purchases the customer is given the option to add any applicable extras and discount vouchers giving you every opportunity to upsell.
