Azamara ship visit Southampton

Azamara Cruises has marked the start of its largest-ever ship visit programme in the UK by welcoming agents onboard Azamara Onward in Southampton

The season will see the line’s UK sales team welcome more agents onboard than ever before, giving more than 500 travel advisors the chance to experience the product.

A total of eleven visits will take place at eight different ports, spanning England, Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland, with both past and prospective trade partners in attendance.

Stuart Pearce, head of trade sales UK & Ireland at Azamara Cruises, said: “We’re really excited to be reaching a record number of agents this summer and to be welcoming many advisors onboard an Azamara Cruises ship for the very first time.

“We look forward to these visits every year – they are a great opportunity for agents to immerse themselves in the Azamara Cruises offering and for us to spend valuable time with our partners, to maintain and build relationships and ensure they have the right information and training to sell successfully.”

Azamara continues to bolster trade output

After Southampton, visits will take place in Dublin (1 July), Cobh (3 July) and Belfast (8 July). Azamara Quest will arrive in Greenock (21 July) then make its way to Leith (14-15 August), before travelling to Aberdeen (16 August), Liverpool (22 August) and Southampton (3 September) to meet Azamara Onward.

This programme is the latest in a series of announcements from the line to increase its support for UK trade partners, as the company continues to invest in leading international markets, such as the UK.

It follows the opening of a new UK call centre that launched this month to offer more tailored support to agents and consumers based locally, and a bolstered series of seminars at sea.
