Travel Agents Cruise The Mid-Atlantic With Viking

December 11, 2017 Agents Incentives No Comments Email Email

Viking Cruises recently hosted 13 travel agents from Australia and New Zealand on board Viking Sun to experience Viking’s 12-day Mid-Atlantic Crossing itinerary cruising between Lisbon and Miami.

The group sailed in the wake of legendary navigators during a leisurely Atlantic crossing, setting sail from Portugal’s capital of Lisbon where the Age of Discoveries blossomed. In the emerald-hued Azores, they learned about the archipelago’s historic significance as a supply station for explorers, admired colourful gardens of azaleas, hydrangeas and camellias, and explored the crater of the volcano in the Sete Cidades massif. On board Viking Sun, they indulged in the ship’s cultural offerings, the LivNordic spa, and the wide range of alternative restaurants. In the British-flavoured Bermuda they took in the island’s pastel-lined streets and breathtaking pink-sand beaches before disembarking in vibrant Miami, Florida.

“The Mid-Atlantic Crossing was the perfect cruise for introducing agents to the Viking ocean product due to the unusual number of sea days,” says Liz Sawers, Director of Sales Viking Cruises Australia & New Zealand. “This famil was our first ever training academy at sea, with up to four hours of training per day and complete immersion into all aspects of the ship. The agents were given the opportunity to meet key personal and have a full ship tour which included behind the scenes, the galley and LivNordic Spa.”

The famil also allowed the agents to experience the Viking difference including the exclusive Culture Curriculum onboard programme of lectures, port talks and enriching performances and destination focused dining.
