“Cruise Planners’ home office team works very hard to come up with new programs to support our home-based agents so we can contribute to the growth and success of Royal Caribbean International,” said Michelle Fee, co-founder and CEO of Cruise Planners/American Express. “The respect and camaraderie we share as partners is one that I appreciate and value. It truly is an overwhelming honor to attain this achievement four times in a row and to be the only travel agent partner with Royal Caribbean International to ever receive it.”

Every year Royal Caribbean International recognizes its preferred travel agent partners with awards honoring the unique business models and significant contributions that assist with the overall success of Royal Caribbean International.
