Voyages to Antiquity to host four ship visits for UK agents

Voyages to Antiquity is giving UK agents the chance to join them this summer by laying on four educational ship visits.

The cruise line will be hosting tours of its vessel Aegean Odyssey in June and August when the ship stops back home during its current European season. Visits will take place in Falmouth (June 20); Tilbury (June 23 and August 5); and Hull (August 3). Up to 25 spots on each tour are available and will be issued on a first-come first-served basis.

Michelle Daniels, the company’s global head of commercial, said: “The trade has proved incredibly important to Voyages to Antiquity as the business has grown and we are very keen for this valuable relationship to continue. “We offer a very specialised holiday for customers so it is important that our agent partners really understand the product and can speak about it with authority. I am really looking forward to welcoming cruise specialists on board and helping them get under the skin of Voyages to Antiquity and learn all about our fascinating ports of call and expert speaker programme.”

The ship visit programme follows the launch of the line’s 2019 European programme, which includes its maiden 14-day ‘Baltic Capitals & St Petersburg’ cruise setting sail on July 3, 2019. The sailing takes in six new countries – Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Poland and Germany – and is already more than half sold.

Daniels added: “Our current 2018 summer season is on target to be our most successful yet, and much of that is down to our travel trade and specialist partners who have generated in excess of 60% of our business. We are continually evolving the product so agents have a reason to keep talking about us to clients – repeat business is very high so we offer excellent earning potential.”

Ship visits will feature a full tour of Aegean Odyssey, the opportunity to talk to crew, a short presentation about the brand, refreshments and the latest news about its plans for the trade.
