Cruising for success

A cruise-specialty franchise with an office in South Surrey has won top marketing honours in the 2011 Travel Weekly Magellan Awards.

The awards – which "honour the best in travel and salutes the outstanding travel professionals behind it all" – were announced Oct. 28.

Cruise Holidays, located locally at 102-2429 152 St., received two Gold Magellan Awards: one for its website, www.cruiseholidays.com, and one in the Travel Agency Advertising/Marketing Campaign category.

The business won a Silver Magellan Award in the Direct Mail category, for its Compass Magazine.

Cruise Holidays is a brand within Travel Leaders Group, which as a whole received 15 Magellan awards.

Cruise Holidays' chief operating officer Mark Schiffner said winning honours for both the website and advertising campaign "is an accomplishment we are extremely proud of."
