Regent Seven Seas Cruises is introducing a new travel agent award.

The winner of the ‘Regent Recognises’ award will be given two places on a pre-inaugural mini-cruise of the line’s latest ship, Seven Seas Splendor.

To be in with a chance of winning, agents need to be nominated by one of their clients.

The client can nominate by explaining how the agent went the extra mile in organising a memorable Regent holiday in under 100 words, with the winning entry chosen by the cruise line’s judging panel.

Nominations can be made at between 16 November and 14 December, with the winner announced in January 2019.

The mini-cruise will be in early 2020 – full details of which are to be confirmed.

The winning agent can also bring a colleague from the same agency.

“The travel industry is incredibly lucky to have the most passionate, hard-working travel trade and we at Regent Seven Seas Cruises truly appreciate their efforts and believe they should be celebrated,” said Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ head of sales UK, Paul Beale.

“As part of ‘Regent Recognises’ we’ll ask our guests to nominate their own unsung holiday hero and I would also encourage our travel partners to contact their most valued clients to ask for a nomination.

“It’s a chance for travel professionals to show the fantastic customer service they provide, plus they could be crowned the winner, securing a place on a pre-inaugural mini-cruise of Seven Seas Splendor, which will be a once in a lifetime experience.”

Seven Seas Splendor launches in February 2020.

Agents are encouraged to look out for more initiatives coming soon.
