The unique advantage for them is having an existing loyal customer base who would be nothing short of thrilled to embark on its favorite leisure brand’s new property. IBS is delighted to support one of Asia’s best hospitality brands as it navigates its path into the cruise industry.”
The iTravel program allows resorts World Cruises to put a digital strategy in place to engage with guests at every step of the trip lifecycle, including the planning stages, personalized shopping, and tours in port.
