Selling Travel - - River Cruising News - BY LAURA GELDER

FRED. Olsen Cruise Lines has launched an on­line train­ing pro­gramme fol­low­ing the launch of its first river ship Bra­bant.

The pro­gramme has five mod­ules fo­cus­ing on life on board Bra­bant, the Euro­pean des­ti­na­tions it serves, key ex­pe­ri­ences, guest ser­vices and how to book, plus a short quiz at the end of each mod­ule.

Bra­bant was launched in April and has been sailing the Danube, Main, Moselle and Rhine rivers.

Mike Evans, Head of Sales at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said: “We know that our travel agents are in­te­gral to our suc­cess, and it is para­mount that those sell­ing our river cruises re­ally un­der­stand the prod­uct that we of­fer, how we op­er­ate and how this dif­fers from our ocean cruises. Our new Euro­pean River Cruis­ing on­line train­ing pro­gramme is the per­fect way for us to make sure travel agents know Bra­bant and our sail­ings in­side out.

The pro­gramme is avail­able on Fred. Olsen’s Travel Agent Cen­tre, a ded­i­cated trade re­source which holds use­ful in­for­ma­tion in down­load­able doc­u­ments, videos, images and vir­tual tours of each of com­pany’s ocean and river ships.

Bra­bant cruises in­clude the five-night De­lights of Hol­land in Bloom cruise, round-trip from Düs­sel­dorf and call­ing at Dutch ports in­clud­ing Schoonhoven and Am­s­ter­dam.
