Regent leaders line up
THIS week’s special preview sailing of the new Seven Seas Splendor is allowing the cruise line’s senior leadership team from Asia-Pacific to experience the product for themselves, as well as interact with key trade partners.
Regional Senior Vice President, Steve Odell has convened his sales chiefs from across the region to attend, along with significant sellers of the product.
Odell told Travel Daily this morning that while Regent’s pricing is at the top end of the scale, a key consideration for agents and their client is the cruise line’s all-inclusive product, which means there is generally nothing extra to pay when disembarking - no bar bill, no cost for excursions, no gratuities and no port charges - in turn meaning agents can earn commission on the full fare.
