Seabourn started its second annual “Global Partner Appreciation Event” last Monday. Going from March 4 to 31, the four-week event will reveal new trade tools, itineraries and promotions and include seminars, webinars, conferences, events and in-person meetings.
The company’s sales teams in North America, the United Kingdom, Europe and Australia are conducting a variety of events throughout the month. The cruise line hopes to use these meetings as an opportunity to network with key travel advisors and talk with them about the latest at Seabourn. In the United States events include a hosted lunch in Scottsdale, Arizona, a cocktail reception in Chicago and a wine reception in Atlanta.
As part of the event, Seabourn is offering an assortment of ways for travelers to save on sailings through spring 2020. Travelers can receive a complimentary stay in a Veranda for Ocean View or two or three Veranda Suite category upgrades. Those booking a Penthouse or Premium Suite will earn a bonus commission of $250 or $500. Passengers on these bookings receive $1,000 in shipboard credit per suite.
During the event, travel advisors can also enter to win a luxury cruise for two. For every booking made, advisors will win one chance to win. At the end of the event, Seabourn will draw two winners, who will receive a cruise of up to 14 days.
