It’s been a busy few weeks for the TCP team and after the fabulous summer showcasing Crystal Symphony during our UK ship visits, it was back to reality!
Throughout October the industry came together to celebrate cruising and the fabulous destinations a cruise can take you to with CLIA Plan a Cruise Month. It was fantastic to see the support from all our travel agents partners and fellow cruise lines alike.
Natalie Read, our Regional Sales Manager, South has been talking all things Crystal Cruises at a number of Trade events. You may have seen her at Selling Travel in London; or at Travel Bulletin in Norwich; or talking all things Paul Gauguin at the Tahiti Roadshow last month.
Natalie has attending numerous client events partnered with our lovely agents, from luxury shows in Bournemouth to Afternoon Tea in London to watching the Battle of Britain Air Display in the Channels Islands, if you have an event or venue near you that would be perfect to hold a Crystal Client event then please do let us know, as we would be only too happy to co-host this with you.
Jon Schofield, our man in the north, has also had a busy few weeks out on the road! Whether he’s been popping in to congratulate his agents on a fantastic Crystal booking, leading some product training, or supporting a client event, a selfie is always a must! You may have seen him over the last few month at Selling Travel in Manchester, CLIA Luxury Masterclass also in Manchester, and Global Travel Group Cruise event in Liverpool. Or seen him flying the Crystal flag at Northumbria Travels Cruise day at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Durham.
This summer Jon also sailed on-board Crystal Mozart, so next time you see him be sure to ask to see his holiday snaps.
Throughout October Crystal Symphony went into dry dock to undergo an extensive multi-million dollar makeover. The team were lucky enough to fly out to Barcelona to take a first peek at the amazing work they’ve done and I think it’s safe to say… She looks amazing!!
