Travel & Tourism Awards 2022 Page 37 LUX 2022 Travel & Tourism Awards Inspiration Cruises & Tours has been curating Christian travel events since 1981. The company provides clients with a wide range of unique and exceptional travel experiences. Inspiration’s client base boasts over 200,000 satisfied travelers. Here’s how the company is bouncing back post pandemic. Inspiration Cruises & Tours Best Christian Travel Management Company 2022 Dec21108 Over 40 years ago, Inspiration Cruises & Tours was founded with a single purpose in mind: to help Christians see the world. The company is now well-known for its outstanding customer service and attention to detail. In the words of company president Steve Dick, “With Inspiration, every minute is worry-free and filled with the joy of extraordinary moments in world-renowned locations. This way you can feel excited and full of anticipation from the moment you book your cruise or tour. That’s because we double- and triple-check every detail so you can enjoy every spectacular moment. We don’t only go the extra mile; we go the whole way with you. And we don’t rest until you’re home safe.” Inspiration’s unique selling points are the company’s commitment to using only the finest ships and venues and the depth and breadth of their ministry and industry relationships, built over the last four decades. Exclusive locations and behind-the-scenes glimpses of popular destinations are possible with Inspiration due to the level of experience and knowledge that their team brings to the table. Staff care deeply about the travel experiences of Inspiration travelers and it’s easy to understand why so many of them return year after year. As well as arranging trips for the general public, Inspiration has also worked with over 600 ministries. The company is a trusted partner of many of today’s most renowned Christian leaders. Inspiration also received a commendation from Israel’s Ministry of Tourism. The COVID-19 pandemic was a testing time for all in the travel industry. But the team at Inspiration felt blessed that they were able to offer an Alaskan cruise as soon as the world of travel re-opened. They also pioneered a new travel opportunity, closer to home: a tour through America’s Heartland. This year, Inspiration is asking its clients to embrace the power of ‘one’. – It’s time to choose one destination, invite one friend, and put one vacation on your calendar for 2022. With the world opening up and steadily returning to normality, Inspiration has begun filling its tour and cruise calendar for 2022 and beyond. Tours of Israel start this March and run at regular intervals throughout the year. The first cruise around Canada and New England is planned for June and the summer months are packed with inspirational trips to Alaska. In fall, Inspiration celebrates music with a Gospel Music Cruise boarding out of Boston in September. October sees the return of Inspiration’s iconic tour of America’s music cities. This unforgettable experience takes in Nashville, Memphis, and New Orleans. It is an absolute must for any music lover. The company foresees a return to its normal worldwide operations in 2023 and has even penciled in dates for a European tour in March of that year.
