For the second year in a row, Cruise Holidays of Vancouver is awarded the Top Producing Store in the Cruise Holidays chain.
Vancouver, BC -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/03/2007 -- Cruise Holidays of Vancouver is the 2007 recipient of the Cruise Holidays Top Producing Store award. This award is given each year to the store with the highest sailed revenue during the previous year, from July to June.
Held onboard Celebrity Cruises’ Mercury from September 23rd to 28th, the 2007 Cruise Holidays Annual Convention drew members from the 130 stores that make up the Cruise Holidays chain. President Denis Lim, along with Vice President Blaine Lambert and Sales Manager Sharl Cline were on hand to receive the prize.
“We’re thrilled to receive this award for the second year in a row. We know it wouldn’t have been possible without our amazing Sales and Admin teams”, said Lim.
“It’s nice to see everyone’s hard work pay off”, said Lambert.
The store once again gained entry into the exclusive President’s Circle – made up of the top 20 performing Cruise Holidays stores, based on total revenue, revenue growth, and participation in Cruise Holidays programs.
“Clearly, Cruise Holidays of Vancouver has not rested on its laurels, but instead, they’ve worked hard to exceed their customers’ expectations which has, in turn, propelled them to earn this stellar achievement for a second straight year,” said Peter D. Thomson, Vice President and COO of Cruise Holidays.

The award for Outstanding Sales Achievement is given to Cruise Specialists with greater than $1 million US in sales in the past year.
