Bluegreen Corporation (NYSE: BXG), a leading provider of Colorful Places to Live and Play, today announced that it was named one of six 'Funtastic' travel partners of 2010 by Carnival Cruise Lines. Bluegreen books nearly five million dollars in cruise business for their owners annually. Bluegreen timeshare owners rank a high satisfaction with the cruise bookings through Bluegreen and Carnival.
'Funtastic' partners are selected from each of Carnival's four U.S. sales territories. Selections are made after Carnival's team of business development managers submits nominations with finalists chosen based on year-over-year growth, improvement in key performance metrics and overall partnership strength. Six winners were ultimately selected by the company's sales leadership team.
"We are truly honored that the Bluegreen Travel Services team was selected as one of six top travel partners in 2010 by Carnival Cruise Lines," says Wendy Poe, Senior Vice President of Club Services and Customer Care of Bluegreen Corporation. She continues, "This is a very prestigious award and we look forward to growing our successful relationship with Carnival in 2011."
This new award program presented by Carnival Cruise Lines replaces Carnival's previous 'Partner of the Year' program by announcing top partners from each sales region as well as a top strategic partner. Bluegreen Corporation represents Carnival's Central Region with an office based out of Indianapolis, Indiana.
"We congratulate our 'Funtastic' travel partners on the many accomplishments they've achieved throughout the past year and thank them for their tremendous support," said Joni Rein, Vice President of Worldwide Sales for Carnival Cruise Lines. "These partners exemplify the reason why so many of us chose to work in the travel industry-to have fun, be successful and help people realize their vacation dreams. We're inspired by their partnership and by the many valued travel partners we work with every day."
