WORLDPAC’s biennial Fantastic Voyage customer cruise sailed the magnificent Hawaiian Islands, from one exotic island to the next, enjoying the tropical ocean breezes of four different islands.
More than 1,400 WORLDPAC customers and VIP guests joined an elite group of suppliers and the WORLDPAC sales and management team for eight days of relaxation, adventure and business meetings aboard Norwegian Cruise Line’s Pride of America, the only cruise ship stationed in Hawaii. Destination highlights included Honolulu, Maui, the Big Island’s Hilo and Kona, as well as Kauai.
WORLDPAC’s Fantastic Voyage V Aloha Hawaii Cruise provided customers with a unique opportunity to join many premier North American independent service repair professionals and leading manufacturers in a tropical setting. Customers from 45 states, provinces and territories traveled across the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico to experience the event.
Guests were treated to exclusive luaus complete with traditional Polynesian dishes, entertainment, and a trade show with many leading industry suppliers. Additional offshore excursions ranged from sailing alongside the Napali Coast to scuba and snorkel adventures; deep sea fishing as well as touring the magnificent diversity of each island. On board, guests enjoyed customer appreciation cocktail parties, networking opportunities, supplier trade meetings and a WORLDPAC management Q&A session.
To guarantee each guest had nothing less than an exceptional experience, a dedicated on board cruise staff was available exclusively for WORLDPAC guests, and everyone stayed in a balcony cabin with a view of the ocean, beaches and ports of call. During the event WORLDPAC distributed hundreds of prizes including daily cabin gifts and more.
