CCL teams up with Signature Travel
CARNIVAL Cruise Line has entered a multi-year preferred supplier partnership with Signature Travel Network (STN).
The US-based network includes more than 200 member agencies with retail locations in the United States, Canada, Brazil, Australia, NZ, Mexico and the Caribbean.
Partnership benefits for the agencies will kick off on 01 Oct with a “Signature Welcome” program led by the cruise line and offering training and support.
Carnival joins its sister brands Princess Cruises, Holland America Line, Cunard, and Seabourn, which were already part of the World’s Leading Cruise Lines preferred supplier team with STN.
“Our executive leadership and sales team are fully dedicated to growing our relationship with Signature Travel Network and leveraging the strength of both organisations to deliver an incredible experience for tens of thousands of travellers each year,” said Adolfo Perez, vp of sales and trade marketing for Carnival Cruise Line.
“Signature’s owners and agents are widely respected for being highly skilled and knowledgeable travel experts and we’re thrilled to begin this preferred relationship so that we can work together on growing their overall business and increasing their Carnival sales,” he added.
STN president and ceo Alex Sharpe said the company offered a members first, serviceoriented culture; strong and supportive relationships with preferred partners and access to customisable, turnkey tools.
Magellan Travel Group last week announced a partnership with the network.
