WORLDPACs Fantastic Voyage Central America Customer Appreciation Cruise is a Splashing Success!

WORLDPAC’s fourth customer cruise event set sail Saturday March 12, 2011 for eight spectacular days of seafaring through the western Caribbean & Central America! Over 1200 WORLDPAC customers and special guests joined an elite group of suppliers and WORLDPAC’s top management and sales staff for an unforgettable experience in exotic ports of call including Cozumel Mexico, Costa Rica and Panama.

WORLDPAC’s Fantastic Voyage provided customers with a chance to get together with other premiere service repair professionals in North America, industry leading manufacturers and the WORLDPAC team. Customers attended the event from 45 states within the US including Canada and Puerto Rico.

The eight day customer appreciation event treated guests to numerous cocktail parties, nightly cabin gifts for all customers, over 150 special raffles prizes including $500 gift certificates and Apple iPad’s that were raffled off and awarded over the course of the cruise. Also included were exclusive bingo with thousands of dollars in cash payouts, a live auction with over $25,000 in prizes, cabin credits, supplier presentations and Q&A sessions with Bosch, ContiTech/CRP, Denso, ZF Group North America (Lemforder, Sachs, Stabilus), Textar/Pagid, Gates, Delphi, Bosal and Mann!

To make sure guests experienced nothing less than an exceptional event, a dedicated onboard cruise staff was available exclusively for WORLDPAC guests. As well, every WORLDPAC guest stayed in a balcony cabin with a fantastic view of the ocean and ports of call.

Fresh off the high seas, WORLDPAC customers were eager to share what they liked best about their Fantastic Voyage experience:
