Wakefield, Mass. (April 11, 2023) – Cruises.com has entered a multi-year partnership with the University of Houston Athletics. Under the agreement, Cruises.com will serve as the “Official Cruise Partner of University of Houston Athletics.”
The new relationship pairs Cruises.com with the University of Houston Athletics to celebrate a shared passion within the community. The Houston Cougars enjoy an enthusiastic and faithful fanbase, highlighted by 300,000+ alumni, which presents an opportunity to engage with Cougar fans through exclusive experiences, in-game activations, promotions, and on-site branding. UH fans can expect to see Cruises.com signage at Darryl & Lori Schroeder Park and Cougar Softball Stadium as well as across UH Athletics media channels.
“We are thrilled to be the Official Cruise Partner of University of Houston Athletics. This partnership presents a unique opportunity to engage with UH fans, students, and alumni in a meaningful way,” said Tim Saccone, Vice President of Acquisition Marketing for Cruises.com. “The UH fanbase is fortunate to be so close to the port of Galveston, which is experiencing unprecedented growth with new ships, more cruise lines, and exciting itineraries. We are thrilled to provide Cougar fans with direct access to the best cruise deals and the greatest value in travel.”
The timing of the partnership is ideal, with both the University of Houston and the leisure travel industry experiencing significant growth. The Cougars are preparing to move to the Big 12 Conference on July 1, while cruisers from Galveston can anticipate new ships from Carnival, Norwegian and Royal Caribbean. The port of Galveston is projected to welcome over one million cruises passengers in 2023.
