PAK-N-GO Cruises and Tours currently has two Cruise Line International Association (CLIA) Master Cruise Counsellors (MCC) on staff. What is a CLIA MCC? A MCC is one of the highest professional level that a cruise travel agent can receive. A MCC is an agent that has dedicated many hours to become a cruise oriented travel professional. The prospective MCC must attend training classes offered by CLIA and pass examinations in regards to such 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.

Kristopher Krenz, MCC has contributed to the cruise travel industry by writing reviews, which have been featured in travel industry publications. Kris has also helped others in the travel industry by teaching and speaking during industry seminars at sea.

PAK-N-GO's commitment to our customer

PAK-N-GO Cruises and Tours is committed to provide the best in Customer Service - We at PAK-N-GO Cruises and Tours believe that everybody wants to work with a sales person who is well informed about their industry/business and can answer all of his or her questions as thoroughly as possible. Our goal is to educate our customers about cruising and to prepare them for the cruise experience. PAK-N-GO Cruises and Tours is committed to helping the first time cruiser as well as being an asset to the experienced cruiser. PAK-N-GO will also help find the cruise the client wants at the best price available.

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, we will however, try to provide as much information as possible about these places. 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.
