APT & Travelmarvel head of sales UK and Europe Brad Bennetts joins the Cruise Corner to discuss the line’s plans to increase agent engagement in 2024.

Earlier this year, the brand announced plans to grow its agency sales team in a bid to bolster its ties with the UK trade, spearheaded by Bennetts.

Soon after, the latest ship to join the APT fleet, Mekong Serenity, departed on its maiden voyage.

Now, the company is looking ahead to what it predicts will be a fruitful 2024 for the cruise industry, with positive booking momentum continuing into the new year with a longer booking curve.

Bennetts looks back at 2023, outlines his hopes for next year, shares his top tips for agents looking to make the most of the upcoming wave period, unveils plans to support the trade during peaks and teased the chances of a new ship joining the fleet in 2025.
