Education And Experience

PAK-N-GO Cruises and Tours has Cruise Line International Association (CLIA) Master Cruise Counsellors (MCCs) on staff. What is a CLIA MCC? A MCC is one of the highest professional levels that a cruise travel agent can achieve. A MCC is an agent who has dedicated many hours to become a cruise oriented travel professional. The prospective MCC must attend training classes offered by CLIA and pass industry examinations as well as various lengths of cruise experience on a wide variety of cruise lines.The first step in achieving the MCC is for the agent to complete his or her ACC (Accredited Cruise Counsellor) certification. The prospective ACC must attend CLIA sponsored industry trade shows and a series of onboard ship inspections. The best part of the training program is acquiring actual cruising experience with various cruise lines. Once the Agent has become an ACC, he or she can continue this education and become a Master Cruise Counsellor. The MCC training is a continuation of an ACC and requires completing in-depth written case studies plus other class work. CLIA provides the agent with a two year time frame to complete ACC requirements and another two years to complete the MCC requirements.

PAK-N-GO Cruises and Tours also has agents who have completed the "Newest" CLIA designation of (LCS) Luxury Cruise Specialist. After completing the Cruise Counsellor Certification.

Actual Cruising Experience

Not just on/off ship inspections or short overnight inaugural events, but actual cruising. We have so many cruises under our belts on many various cruise lines and cabin categories, that we have lost count.

Beginnings

PAK-N-GO Started cruising in 1969 on a Norwegian Caribbean Line's first and original Sunward (not the Sunward II).

PAK-N-GO's Commitment To Our Customer

Are all ships and cruise lines equal? - Absolutely not! There are good cruises and there are great cruises or there are cruises you never should spend your hard earned money on. PAK-N-GO Cruises and Tours will not use industry jargon to make a cruise sale. We will only answer your questions as truthfully as possible. PAK-N-GO Cruises and Tours will share their expertise and cruising experience to help you the customer decide which ship is the best match for your personality.

PAK-N-GO Cruises and Tours' Philosophy: is that after a customer purchases a cruise the sale transaction has only just begun. Helping customers with questions about their cruise's ports of call is an extra service PAK-N-GO Cruises and Tours provide. Granted we at PAK-N-GO Cruises and Tours do not know all the ports and ships, we will however, try to provide as much information as possible. Because each port of call can offer many tour opportunities, we can offer suggestions to help the customer choose their tour options before the cruise rather than spending time during the cruise. If the client decides their tour options in advance this will let them spend more time enjoying the cruise and relaxing while other shipmates are trying to make up their mind at port talks or waiting in line at the shore excursion desk. Some of PAK-N-GO Cruises and Tours suggestions may even help you our valued customer save time and money.
