Cruise sales agency The Cruise Portfolio aims to train almost 100 agents as part of a nationwide roadshow.

Information on Crystal Cruises, Windstar Cruises, Orion Expedition Cruises and Paul Gauguin Cruises will be provided at the six events.
The Cruise Portfolio expects 40 agents to attend each event to receive updates on the four cruise brands including new elements for 2011, product and destination news as well as the chance to win prizes.
Sales and marketing director Andy Harmer said: “We invest considerable time and energy in working with travel agents, ensuring their training and their product knowledge is a priority.

“The four cruise brands we represent are very different and each offers its own individual perspective on what makes for the very best luxury holiday at sea.

“It is therefore vital that we meet with agents face-to-face on a regular basis and provide them with as much information and training as possible to enable them to sell the right cruise to the right person.”

The roadshow dates are:
•         June 29                Chester
•         June 30                York
•         July 1                   Peterborough
•         July 12                 Bristol
•         July 13                 Oxford
•         July 15                 Brighton
