Ahead of its ninth annual summer season in Australia, Classic International Cruises has hosted a special awards function in Adelaide where CIC’s traditional liner, Athena, will be based for a series of round-trip cruises as part of her program in South Australia and Western Australia.
Attended by more than 60 South Australian agents, wholesalers, key industry figures and hosted by Classic International Cruises, the Adelaide event was designed as a thank-you for the many SA travel agents who had helped make the 2011/12 season for Athena the best ever for the cruise line. The event also served to highlight Athena’s next season in Adelaide this summer as the only liner offering home-porting in SA. New rail and sail packages including Athena cruises from Adelaide were also launched at the event.
Classic International Cruises presented awards to its top four SA agents, based on sales results – City Centre Travel, Cruise Booking Centre, King William Travel and Phil Hoffman Travel.
CIC also awarded two agents accolades as ‘Consultant of the Year’, as voted by the CIC reservations team. These were won by Sonya Mewett from City Travel Centre and Eva Green from Phil Hoffman Travel.
And Carolyn Edwards from King William Travel won CIC’s award for being the top groups agent in SA.
