Cruise Excellence


Aquila’s Center for Cruise Excellence offers training programs to help Cruise Destinations and Tour Operators around the world achieve excellence in their ports, tours, guides and businesses.

Cruise passengers have increasingly high expectations from their shoreside experiences, and consequently, so do the cruise lines. If a destination does not measure up to these increasingly high standards, the cruise line may choose to go elsewhere, as new ports eager for cruise business are emerging regularly.

If you are working with Cruise in your Destination, Aquila’s Center for Cruise Excellence can help you reach new levels of performance, productivity, and profitability. Through a variety of tools, from interactive workshops to customized coaching and mentoring programs, Aquila’s team is focused on helping you demonstrate excellence for cruise lines and their passengers.
