If you were to buy a online cruise business, what would it be and why?

If you have one, why that one?

I am considering a full time job after I retire, any advise?

You can contact Adnan Khashoggi. He is one of the largest cruise missile dealers on the planet. OOPs.. You mean like cruise vacations don't you? Sorry about that...

I would check out the information on ASTA site
http://www.astanet.com/education/edu_becoming.asp

If you have a local TA ask to sit in and see how the business works.
TA's do not make a whole lot of $$

Most tour operators are cracking down on the discounts they give to TA for personal travel you must have an IATAN card to get the deals http://www.iatan.com/welcome

Read up on the travel business before you commit.

Good luck in whatever your choice may be

Thank you, I am not sure if I went to jump into this type of business or not. I have been pondering it for quite awhile. I recently retired from 30 years in the military and I love to cruise with my wife of 27 years. This would be a great fit if the right opportunity was there...

Thanks again,

Max

Who is Adnan Khashoggi and what can he do for me. I don't want to shoot aircraft down, I want to sell cruises to wonderfull, wealthy people. OOPs...

If you are wanting to get into the business to get the "Perks" you would probably be spending more than what you would save.
If you have a TA close to you see if you can work PT just to get a feel of the business.
