Advantage cruise conference to take place on Ambassador ship

Ambassador Cruise Line ship Ambience will host The Advantage Travel Partnership’s annual cruise conference this year.

The three-night Advantage Latitude Cruise Conference will take place from October 24-27 on a sailing from London Tilbury to Amsterdam.

Suppliers from the ocean, river and expedition cruise sectors will be in attendance, and business sessions and panel discussions will take place.

A key area of focus will be how delegates can “encourage the next wave of cruisers and drive further growth within the sector”, according to senior commercial manager for cruise Jonny Peat.

Registration is open and Advantage’s Latitude cruise community will benefit from a reduced rate of £75 when sharing a cabin and £150 for single occupancy.

“We are delighted to be hosting this conference in partnership with Ambassador Cruise Line and thrilled that it will be taking place in the bustling and dynamic destination of Amsterdam,” said Peat.

“By having our cruise conferences onboard a cruise ship, our members can put themselves in the shoes of their customers and capitalise on the opportunity to experience first-hand what the host cruise line has to offer.

“For this conference, for the first time we will also be sailing from Tilbury, which will give any members who have not cruised ex-UK this added experience too.”

Louise Tansy, divisional sales manager for Ambassador Cruise Line, said: “As Ambassador looks to work even more closely with the travel community in 2024, it is an honour for us to partner with Advantage to host the prestigious Latitude Cruise Conference.

“We’re really looking forward to hosting delegates onboard Ambience where they’ll not only enjoy insightful business sessions and workshops, but also the exceptional service, outstanding cuisine and amazing entertainment Ambassador offers to all our guests.

“With no-fly cruising growing evermore popular, we are thrilled to be able to showcase the amazing Ambassador experience to delegates who will also get the chance to explore Amsterdam and discover all that this magnificent city has to offer.”
