first_imgRCL Cruises has announced the winners of its Cruising for Excellence online training programme. Annemarie  Hundhammer from Phil Hoffmann Travel – Glenelg, Anna Shannon from Flight Centre North Ryde and Maree Watson from House of Travel Tauranga have won themselves one of the three amazing cruise prizes on Azamara Club Cruises, Celebrity Cruises and Royal Caribbean International.“Congratulations Annemarie, Anna and Maree and well done to all who have made it to “Admiral” status in the programme.  We are pleased with how well Cruising for Excellence has been received here, with several thousand local travel agents who have registered since the launch of the programme late last year,” said Adam Armstrong, commercial manager, RCL Cruises Australia & New Zealand.   “We know it is not practical for travel agents to visit all 40 ships that are part of RCL’s cruise lines – Royal Caribbean International alone sails to 270 destinations in 72 countries across six continents. So we designed the programme so agents get to know each ship as if they were onboard themselves, arming them with the knowledge and confidence to give their clients the best advice about their cruising needs. We strongly encourage agents to make use of this revolutionary online training programme. ” says Adam. Cruising for Excellence is an online 3D e-learning tool which allows agents to explore and learn about the key selling points of the ships in the three Royal Caribbean Cruise brands. Upon completing each module, the participant earns a ‘Captain’ title for that cruise brand. Once the Captain status is achieved for all three cruise brands, the participant becomes an ‘Admiral’. Highlights of the Cruising for Excellence program include 35 training modules which covers ship guides, dining, onboard amenities & activities, family cruising, destinations, accommodation and shore excursions, as well as fact sheets for restaurant and bar menus, onboard activities, revitalization charts, kids planners, and other useful information. Cruising for Excellence is open to all travel agents in Australia & New Zealand who can take part by heading to www.cruisingforexcellence.com.au or www.cruisingforexcellence.co.nz    Azamara Club Cruises Prize Winner Name: Annemarie Hundhammer, Phil Hoffmann Travel – Glenelg Prize:   An Oceanview cabin for two people on Azamara Club Cruises, on a cruise of up to 14 nights duration.
