Sabre Cruises Enhancements Provide More Streamlined Process


SOUTHLAKE, Texas - Sabre Travel Network, the world’s largest marketplace for buying and selling travel, has added new enhancements to its browser-based cruise booking engine Sabre Cruises. The new features provide Sabre Connected travel agents features that enhance their customer service when shopping and booking the 13 cruise lines available in Sabre.

“With these new enhancements, booking cruises in Sabre Cruises is even easier and more streamlined than before,” said Dan Westbrook, vice president of merchandising, Sabre Travel Network. “Travel agents benefit from managing every aspect of their cruise sales efficiently and professionally while earning great commissions.”

Agents can shop and compare cruise lines, get live inventory, book automated group rates, view deck plans, cabins, choose dining preference and can even book pre- and post-sailing packages.

With the latest enhancements to Sabre Cruises, agents now also get:

Enhanced documentation, including the ability to print agent and customer invoice deck plans, cabin pictures and more
Integration with ClientBase+ including the ability to LiveConnect into Sabre Cruises so they can track and retain detailed customers records
Expanded passenger information, including more flexibility with name fields
More pricing options earlier in the shopping process, including the ability to review special resident, senior, past passenger, child fare or 3rd/4th passenger prices
Functionality that enables them to clone a booking, making multiple bookings much faster.
“Since the launch in November 2006, cruise bookings in Sabre Cruises have doubled,” said Westbrook. “Our customers love how easy and fast it is, and how much control they have over the end-to-end process compared to booking by phone. And we are really excited about enhancing the functionality of Sabre Cruises in a way that makes both the travel agents and our cruise partners more efficient and more profitable.”
