Celebrity Cruises hails success of ‘biggest-ever’ seminars at sea

Cruise line hosted 85 agents across two Celebrity Apex sailings

Celebrity Cruises has hailed the success of its “biggest-ever seminar at sea events".

The line hosted 85 agents across two three-night Celebrity Apex sailings earlier this month.

Leon Hand, training manager EMEA, led guided tours and Q&A sessions, and agents had the opportunity to visit the ship’s speciality restaurants and theatre.

Agents also experienced a new treasure hunt game, called Discover Apex, to learn more about the vessel.

Of those who attended the seminars, 16 were winners of the line’s Celebrity Cruises for Beginners campaign, and were given a private seminar session with tips on how to sell cruise to their customers.

Hand said: “Hosting our record-breaking seminars at sea has been an absolute delight. Onboard the Forbes Travel Guide-rated Celebrity Apex we’ve given our enthusiastic agents a taste of the ship as if they were VIP guests themselves.

“This immersive experience fuels their ability to sell Celebrity Cruises with genuine passion and authenticity. We ran workshops that covered everything from deployment to booking systems and the art of upselling.

“These opportunities are key for our brand as they give our agents the unique opportunity to sail onboard as a guest which enables them to sell with first-hand experience and learn in a fun and interactive way.”
