A fully refurbished European fleet, three ships sailing from UK ports of call and new itineraries from Southampton on both the world’s largest and newest cruise ships, are among the many highlights of the new 2014 - 2015 Worldwide brochure from Royal Caribbean International.
With an impressive eight ships in Europe for summer 2014, along with Oasis of the Seas’ highly anticipated first ever European micro-season, there’s plenty for agents to shout about.
To mark the launch of the new brochure and encourage early bookings for the 2014 – 2015 season, Royal Caribbean International is giving agents the chance to explore some of their fascinating ports of call for themselves. The cruise line will be giving away an action-packed weekend break for two people every week throughout the months of June and July 2013, including flights, accommodation, dinner and sightseeing. Agents simply need to create and confirm any new 2013 or 2014 booking between now and 31 July 2013 to be with a chance to win one of the nine fantastic weekends away. Book this June or July 2013 and guests will also receive free balcony or oceanview stateroom upgrade on selected European and Worldwide sailings in 2014.
Nicki Tempest-Mitchell, head of trade sales UK and Ireland, Royal Caribbean International commented:
“We’re thrilled to be launching our new 2014 – 2015 worldwide brochure which features a host of great deals and fantastic new itineraries to entice holidaymakers keen to get away from it all. Agents have really got behind our last few campaigns and as a thank you to them we’re giving them the opportunity to experience a weekend away in some of our most exciting destinations. By bringing to life the highlights of cruise itineraries we hope to see agents support our new brochure push and have all the tools needed to sell with the utmost confidence.”
