Celebrity hosts largest Seminars at Sea

85 agents came aboard across two three-day events

Celebrity Cruises has held its biggest ever Seminar at Sea for 85 travel agents from more than 24 travel agencies across the UK and Ireland.

Both of the three-night seminars were onboard Celebrity Apex, which will be sailing out of the UK from 2024.

The events saw agents enjoy a mix of immersive experiences, led by Leon Hand, the company’s training manager. There was also a question & answer session with the onboard team.

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, this enables them to sell with first-hand experience and learn in a fun and interactive way.“

One agent said: “I’ve gained an incredible wealth of knowledge and now I feel empowered when it comes to selling the Celebrity brand.” Another agent added, “You truly can’t grasp this ship until you’ve experienced it firsthand. I now have the utmost confidence in identifying the perfect clients for Celebrity Cruises.” A Travel Weekly New-to-Cruise attendee commented, “This was an absolute game-changer for me. I dove headfirst into the world of Celebrity and cruising, something completely new to me. I’ve absorbed invaluable lessons that will undoubtedly elevate my sales pitch. I’m genuinely grateful for this personal touch and experience I can bring to my conversations with customers moving forward.”
