Donna brings more than 30 years of travel industry expertise to the role and the well-deserved respect of legions of travel advisors. “With more than 500 connections in the charter and incentive business, Donna comes to Scenic with a rolodex that goes far and deep,” offered Ann Chamberlin, Vice President, Sales, Scenic Group USA. “She has built long-term relationships with travel advisors by forming bonds based on respect and a never-ending effort to support their needs.

            Since 2011, Donna has been the Director of Charter & Incentive Sales for Paul Gauguin Cruises. In this role, she increased MICE sales from 5% to more than 20% of the line’s overall net revenue. Kurtz began her career in the cruise industry in 1986 at Holland America Line, before moving to Windstar Cruises in 1990. She spent 21 years working at Windstar in a variety of roles before being promoted to the Director of Charter/Incentive Sales. Donna is originally from Tacoma, WA., and lives there with her husband, spending her time off enjoying the perks of grandparenthood with her two grandchildren.

Scenic Group has grown over its 34-year history to include award-winning, all-inclusive river and ocean cruises and handcrafted land tours that take guests to many of the world’s most fascinating destinations. Since 2008, Scenic has offered river cruises in Europe, SE Asia and Russia on its 15 Space-Ships and Egypt on a luxury charter.
