Viator, Inc., the leading resource for researching and booking tours and activities around the world has this week unveiled a new website specifically designed to help cruise passengers find and book shore excursions with savings in excess of 40% off typical rates offered by cruise lines. At the same time the company will make its offering available to select travel agent and affiliate partners through the Viator Partner Programme. Details of the programme are available via: www.shoreexcursions.viator.com ; the site features more than 500 shore excursions in over 80 of the most popular ports around the world.
The new platform has been designed for the complex nature of shore excursion bookings and will offer only relevant tours and activities linked to a specific itinerary and the ship, with itineraries available from the world’s leading cruise companies including Carnival Cruises, Costa Cruises, Holland America, MSC Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line, Princess Cruises and Royal Caribbean. Once a cruise line, ship name and departure date are selected, Viator will instantly load the cruise ship’s itinerary and present only those excursions than can specifically work for each port of call based on arrival and departure times and availability.
Viator’s shore excursions are fully commissionable for participating partners and all tours can be purchased in pound sterling. Visit the Viator.com website for more information about the Viator Partner Programme.
