More than 1,500 agents entered a prize draw to help Cruise and Maritime Voyages achieve record trade sales for the start of 2018.

The line did not disclose the details of booking levels but described trade support as being “excellent”.

The new year trade incentive gave agents the chance to win ten prizes, including a fam trip on the sip Magellan to the Norwegian fjords this month which was won by Kelly Swinhoe of ROL Cruise.

Another winner was Tracey Murray, of Miles Morgan Travel, who received a Fitbit Charge.

A new trade incentive running until April 30 offers a further ten prizes including two tickets for the Chelsea Flower Show.

CMV head of trade sales Lisa Jacobs said: “Trade support throughout the year continues to be excellent.

“CMV were delighted with the response to this draw to win one of ten prizes. All were related to some of the most popular new year resolutions. The prizes were associated with health, time keeping, reducing stress, more sleep and food.”

She added: “We have put together ten prizes to remind our trade partners that spring is here, so they can put behind them the cold spell and enjoy the benefits of booking with CMV.”
