There is approximately a 40% vacancy rate in hotels & cruise lines around the country outside of peak weeks (i.e. Christmas/New Year's etc). Travel providers understand that if their rooms or cruise cabins remain empty, they are not making any revenue from them. As a result, they are willing to provide these rooms and cruise cabins for port fees and/or room tax and administrative costs only.
Statistically proven you the traveler will purchase cocktails, go to the casino, buy gifts from the gift shops, use spa services, buy tours and go to restaurants. Indirectly, the cruise lines and hotels will make millions of dollars in additional revenue that would have been lost. Otherwise, they are stuck with empty rooms and empty rooms produce no revenue. This creates a win for you the traveler as you help to fill those rooms and cabins and provides a win-win for the hotel and cruise lines as well.
Fun Cruises and Vacations co-markets these travel companies' available rooms and cabins and makes them available to you at pennies on the Dollar.

We offer these vacations to businesses and non-profits so that they may use them as promotional tools to increase their sales, walk-in traffic, retention, and/or donor contributions.
How Do We Do It?
FC&V Coastal Worldwide contracts with the world leading hotel chains, cruise lines and resorts to help fill their otherwise empty rooms when they need it most. We help fill empty rooms which the hotels and cruise lines turn into future sales. Hotels rarely experience full occupancy, yet they remain open and they still have their fixed costs. So when the properties give out their rooms by partnering with Worldwide Incentive Services, they might miss out on the room fee, but now they gain a customer in their in-house restaurants, room service, the casino, spa and other amenities within their property. The hotels and resorts are doing it for the same reason why you would be using these incentives, to increase your repeat and referral business. They know that if they show your customers a good time they might tell their friends and family about the great time they had and hopefully will come back to stay there at a regular rate in the future. Contracting with the largest travel conglomerates in the travel industry today ensures quality vacations for your customers with No Timeshare or Sales Presentations-- Guaranteed! In fact, we won't work with any property that has less than a 3*** star rating by other travelers on http://www.tripadvisor.com/
