Venture Ashore, the world’s largest independent shore excursion company has announced the launch of a new website for travel agents.
The company said the new website improves ease of use when booking for land-based and cruise customers with a range of new product offerings available to book.
Key changes include the ability to log in on the Venture Ashore homepage without opening a different booking window.
Agents can also enjoy easy management of customer-created bookings and a newly designed white-label affiliate website customised for each agent.
The affiliate site mimics the new Venture Ashore website which includes a new user interface and reporting capabilities.
Agents can now log in and browse through 2024 and 2025 itineraries that are available to book. Tour vouchers can now be collected directly via the portal as soon as reservations are confirmed.
Unique affiliate links are assigned to every user account for tracking and redeeming.
Venture Ashore offers shore excursions with many cruise liners including Royal Caribbean, P&O Cruises, Princess Cruises, Celebrity Cruises, MSC Cruises and Norwegian Cruise Line.
Kirsty Bachelor, Director of Sales, Venture Ashore, says:
“Travel agents are now able to search and book excursions by destination, which enables agents the opportunity to sell experiences for both pre and post-cruise.
“For the first time, agents can now offer bookings for land-based customers, providing great extra earning opportunities.
“We encourage feedback from agents on the new website and will continue to make enhancements, where necessary.
“We are confident these improvements will benefit travel agents for the better and encourage them to sell more of Venture Ashore’s products.”

New ships added to the system include the Royal Caribbean’s Icon of the Seas, Princess Cruises’ Sun Princess, and Celebrity Ascent.
