Virgin Voyages unveils trade incentive as part of latest ‘ship tease’

Virgin Voyages is to give away ‘swag bags’ and a Caribbean cruise in an agent incentive to celebrate an exclusive announcement to be made next month.

The line has teamed up with Travel Weekly for a special virtual trade event, which will be broadcast on Facebook on Monday, March 8 and will include interviews and updates alongside the announcement of the prize winners.

Shane Riley, associate vice-president for international sales, said: “’We’re delighted to be partnering with Travel Weekly for our latest ‘Ship Tease’. Over the last six months we have been busy making ship happen with the construction of our very own terminal in Miami, increasing our commission to a sweet 16% and launching a brand-new First Mates e-learning platform, Seacademy.

“As we gear up for a latest reveal, we’re giving you the chance to win one of five exclusive Virgin Voyages swag bags and one lucky winner will bag themselves a Caribbean Voyage for themselves and a companion. We hope you’ll join us on March 8 to hear the next exciting step in our Epic Sea Change.”

Lucy Huxley, editor-in-chief of Travel Weekly Group, said: “Virgin Voyages has underlined its commitment to the travel trade since its launch, and we are excited to be working with the team on this exciting agent event.

“The pandemic continues to create many challenges for agents and the wider industry, so it will be fantastic to celebrate the latest news and give away some brilliant prizes to readers as we look to a brighter future with a supplier that has the trade firmly at the core of its strategy.”
