Celebrity Cruises has announced that it is to increase travel agent training on board its ships.
The company will be hosting seven interactive training events on board Celebrity Eclipse and Celebrity Silhouette in destinations including Liverpool and Dublin.
The company has added a treasure hunt (called GooseChase) which will lead a group of agents to an area of the ship after working through a series of riddles. They will then bring up the GooseChase app and upload a selfie showing the group in that location.
Claire Stirrup, director of sales, Celebrity Cruises UK and Ireland, said: “After a successful summer training programme last year, we wanted to give even more agents the chance to join Leon and Emma on board this year. It’s key for our agents to experience first-hand our ships and life on board in order to sell Celebrity Cruises to their customers. Ensuring that our training sessions are informative, interactive and fun for agents is important and we’re looking forward to welcoming our trade partners on board this year and receiving their feedback on how we can help to support them further.”
The training days are as follows:
Greenock – 13 June
Cork – 16 June
Southampton – 17 September
Dublin – 26 July
Edinburgh – 14 August
Liverpool – 17 August
Belfast – 18 August
