Travel Counsellors talk cruise with dedicated training day
Travel Counsellors around Australia boosted their confidence in selling cruise with a dedicated cruise training day hosted by Travel Counsellors cruise executive Jane Tanti at the Melbourne Office yesterday.
Recognising the growing trend in cruise travel, the one-day training program invited cruise lines to attend and present. Nine different cruise lines participated – Carnival Cruise Line, Seabourn Cruise Line, Holland America, Cunard Line, Princess Cruises, APT, Oceania Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line and Viking Ocean Cruises.
It was a full house with 12 Travel Counsellors attending the event to develop their knowledge of the different cruise lines. Using the technology of TCTV, the sessions were also broadcast LIVE across Australia to all Travel Counsellors in a very special TCTV program. The live broadcast gave those who were unable to travel for the event access to learn from the cruise partners presentations and participate in question time. A replay of the recorded sessions is also available.
Travel Counsellor Kate Trickett made the trip from Geelong to attend saying, “I’m happy I made the commitment to my business to attend and learn more. The day was really well organised, and with a great range of our cruise partners presenting, it meant I was able to compare the different cruise lines better and ask more in-depth questions to the reps”.
Speaking of the event, Jane Tanti said, “We wanted to provide an opportunity for our Travel Counsellors to learn about or refresh their information on different Cruise Lines. It is so great to have the support of our Cruise Line partners for what was a very successful day.”
