Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (May 14, 2024) World Travel Holdings, the parent company of South Florida-based Dream Vacations/CruiseOne, a homebased travel agency franchise, has been awarded a 2024 Top Workplaces honor by the Sun Sentinel for a record-setting tenth year in a row (every year since the award’s inception). World Travel Holdings’ Dream Vacations/CruiseOne brands house the lion’s share of the division’s talented and experienced employees out of its Fort Lauderdale headquarters.

“The ten of us representing various departments and the leadership team at the award ceremony were so proud to accept this award on behalf of the entire World Travel Holdings and Dream Vacations/CruiseOne team,” said Debbie Fiorino, chief operating officer of owned brands for World Travel Holdings. “To be the only company listed all ten years in this award’s history is an incredible accomplishment that speaks to the amazing culture and work environment we’ve grown and fostered in South Florida. This group passes on that care and professionalism every day to support our wonderful franchisees in following their American dreams of entrepreneurship.”

The South Florida office welcomes hundreds of new franchisees a year for in-depth and in-person orientation and business training. The employees that work in the B2B division include personnel with expertise in training and education, business development, information technology, operations, support services, marketing, and public relations. Earlier this year, the office hosted a celebration to commemorate Dream Vacations reaching and surpassing the 2,000-franchise milestone.

“Our diverse team members create an accepting and inclusive environment that encourages everyone to perform at a high-level and bring their A-game to the table,” said Drew Daly, senior vice president and general manager for Dream Vacations/CruiseOne. “This is the key to creating an atmosphere and team dynamic that results in employee satisfaction and retention. Additionally, being part of a major player in the travel industry is a fun and rewarding lifestyle!”

The Sun Sentinel Top Workplaces list is solely based on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC.
