Free cruises, prizes and hurricane relief donations were on the agenda at TravelBrands’ SeaU
MISSISSAUGA, ON – From October 21 until October 28, TravelBrands held its fifth SeaU aboard The Anthem of the Seas. Hosting approximately 150 travel agents, team members and suppliers, the week was filled with prizes, speakers and raising awareness for hurricane relief.
“This was our most action-packed SeaU to date. While we enjoyed our stay, we felt that it was important to give back to the surrounding communities affected by recent natural disasters,” says Frank DeMarinis, President & CEO, TravelBrands. “Through the generous contributions of travel agents, Royal Caribbean and TravelBrands, we raised $10,000 USD towards the Hurricane relief fund.”
This comprehensive cruise event is filled with training sessions, workshops and seminars to give agents and partners all the tools necessary to make the best cruise sale. Throughout the duration of the sail, 10 suppliers presented their products to 125 travel agents in both English and French. Larry Pimentel, President & CEO of Azamara Club Cruises was this SeaU’s keynote speaker while Ron Petit from Royal Caribbean held a conference on Autism at Sea.
Multiple prizes were awarded to agents throughout the sail. Radha Yipchuck of Titan Tours won back the value of her SeaU participation fee. Gisèle Boissonneault of Voyages Gaby won a cruise on the MSC Seaside. Manon Chartrand of Exotentik won a spot on the inaugural of the Norwegian Cruise Line Bliss and air for two. Janet Flegel of Celebration Travel and Mary Elsa May of itravel2000 each were rewarded a cruise for two including air on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line. In addition to these incredible winnings, each agent received 2500 Access Loyalty Rewards points to be applied on their next five cruises booked through Encore Cruises.
The Anthem of the Seas is a part of the Royal Caribbean cruise line. A ship with cutting edge experiences, the Anthem of the Seas departed from Cape Liberty and made stops in Nassau, Port Canaveral and CocoCay. During the port day at Port Canaveral, Universal hosted the agents in their action-packed theme parks. TravelBrands’ SeaU takes place every 18-24 months.
