Travel Weekly’s CruiseWorld 2015 ship inspection roster, now
available online, includes a selection of 14 ships for which inspections will
be available exclusively to attendees of CruiseWorld.
Opportunities are limited, and the ship inspections,
scheduled for Nov. 10, 14 and 15 in Fort Lauderdale and Miami, both before and
after CruiseWorld, are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
“This year’s event is the only remaining opportunity
available in 2015 for travel agents to see a selection of ships from a variety
of major cruise brands at one time,” said Alicia Evanko-Lewis, senior vice
president of events for Northstar Travel Media, Travel Weekly’s parent company.
“We are thrilled to have so many ships to offer as part of our educational
component for attendees.”
This year’s inspection roster includes Carnival Cruise
Line’s Breeze and Conquest; Celebrity Cruises’ Reflection and Silhouette; the
Disney Magic; Holland America’s Eurodam, Nieuw Amsterdam and Westerdam;
Princess Cruises’ Emerald Princess, Regal Princess and Royal Princess; and
Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas, Navigator of the Seas and Oasis of the
CruiseWorld, which will take place Nov. 11 through 13 in
Fort Lauderdale, includes general sessions offering industry leadership, supplier
training programs, peer training and a bustling exhibitor showcase.
Spots are filling quickly for the newly launched STAR
(Select Travel Advisor Recognition) Program, which is structured to provide
enhanced event programming while offsetting some of the financial expenses
incurred by travel advisers to attend professional development events.
The core component of the STAR Program is a series of
collaborative meetings scheduled between exhibiting supplier partners and
prequalified, vetted travel advisers committed to business growth.
Advisers who qualify for the STAR Program and who are
selected to participate will receive complimentary registration and
complimentary hotel accommodation for two nights. Specific participation
requirements are detailed on the CruiseWorld website.
Traditional registration opportunities are also available on
the website for those who do not wish to apply for the STAR Program.
