Cruise Holidays Presents "New Store of the Year” Award to Cruise Holidays of Clarkson

Minneapolis, MN (November 12, 2009) — Cruise Holidays, North America’s oldest cruise-specialty retail franchise, presented Cruise Holidays of Clarkson its New Store of the Year award at a special ceremony during the network’s Annual Convention aboard Royal Caribbean’s Radiance of the Seas.


The owners of Cruise Holidays of Clarkson, Zaneta and Joe Rochemont, relied on their passion for classical music and creative marketing techniques to help launch their business. For their first group sailing, they promoted an opera cruise via local radio. Since that time, their group business has flourished and continues to feature some opera and classical music sailings. As they say on their Web site, "The nucleus of our group tours is around the major rivers of Europe and the Nile where the traveler can experience the richness of ancient history and early civilizations in the world’s famous cities!”


"Cruise Holidays of Clarkson has rapidly built relationships with clients due to their commitment to creating unique travel experiences with a focus on customer service,” said Mark Schiffner, vice president of Cruise Holidays. "They add a personal touch to their clients’ experience that has helped them launch and build a successful business,” he added.


The Rochemonts opened their store in 2007. The New Store of the Year award was open to all stores that had a full year of sales in 2008. Cruise Holidays of Clarkson is located at 1739 Lakeshore Rd W., Mississauga, ON. It is part of the Cruise Holidays network, which includes franchisees across Canada and the United States.
