Aqua Expeditions Announces Agent Incentive For Jean-Michel Cousteau Mekong And Amazon Cruise Bookings In 2017 And 2018
Aqua Expeditions has announced an incentive prize to Fiji for the first agents to book a 7-night Jean-Michel Cousteau charter on Aqua Mekong or Aria Amazon for 2017 and 2018.
The leading luxury river cruise operator recently announced a new collaboration with renowned champion of ocean conservation and environmental protection, Jean-Michel Cousteau, offering travellers a series of cruises in 2017 and 2018 hosted by the famed explorer on the two vessels.
The first agent to book a 7-night full charter cruise hosted by Cousteau in 2017 and 2018 will each be rewarded with a week-long holiday for two people at the 5-star Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort in Fiji.
Due to increased demand, Aqua Expeditions has also announced it will now offer 3 and 4-night itineraries for those people wishing to take up a shorter duration on their Mekong or Amazon cruises.
The son of ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau, Jean-Michel founded the Ocean Futures Society in 1999 to carry on this pioneering work and to honour his father’s heritage. An award-winning producer of more than 80 films, Jean-Michel has been recognized internationally with numerous prestigious awards for his work in ocean conservation.
During these exclusive departures, travellers will experience the environmentally rich Mekong and Amazon rivers from the perspective of a conservationist and will get to know Jean-Michel in the intimacy of a small group of fellow travellers (Aqua Mekong’s maximum capacity is 40 passengers and Aria Amazon carries up to 32). Guests will learn first-hand about Cousteau’s deep experience exploring the Amazon and other remote areas around the world as he champions the cause of environmental conservation and protection. Each voyage will include evening talks with Cousteau, and screenings of several of his award-winning films.
“I met Jean-Michel several months ago and instantly understood we share important common values,” said Aqua Expeditions Founder and CEO, Francesco Galli Zugaro.
“As we launch our new partnership, it will be a privilege and an honour to be hosting him on these very special departures on Aqua Mekong and Aria Amazon. This special series of cruises introduces an in-depth collaboration between Jean-Michel Cousteau and Aqua Expeditions to highlight the importance of environmental conservation, said Mr Galli Zugaro.
“The idea of travelling to some of the largest water systems in the world, including the Amazon and Mekong Rivers, evoke a feeling of adventure, exotic beauty and remoteness. My hope is to inspire Aqua Expeditions’ passengers to appreciate at an emotional and intellectual level on how we are part of one global water system. We are the only species that can ensure a biologically and culturally rich future for all species. Protecting our water planet now is our gift to the future,” said Cousteau.
