Norwegian Cruise Line Celebrates Travel Partners with a “Week of You”
Norwegian Cruise Line announced the launch of “Week of You”, a complimentary series featuring thoughtfully curated virtual events designed to inspire and support travel advisors as they prepare for the industry’s highly-anticipated comeback.
From Dec. 7 to 11, 2020, the “Week of You” will provide travel partners with access to exclusive content and opportunities to engage with A-list lifestyle experts and business leaders, including The New York Times best-selling author and purpose coach Jay Shetty, “Queer Eye’s” design guru Bobby Berk, award-wining winemaker and NCL partner Michael Mondavi, Karrikins Group founder and leader of the business growth advisory council Peter Sheahan, Facebook’s Head of Travel Colleen Coulter and renowned business communications expert and one of Amazon’s best-selling authors Jill Schiefelbein. Topics will range from tips on how to establish and maintain healthy mental well-being and mindfulness, to do-it-yourself home office makeovers for a more productive work environment and leveraging social media platforms for client engagement and to grow sales.
In addition to the lifestyle and educational workshops, the Company will host dedicated sessions where travel partners will have the opportunity to engage with NCL executives and sales representatives to prepare them for the brand’s upcoming return to cruise. Attendees will further their knowledge on the NCL guest experience and innovative product offerings with discussions focused on group sales, upcoming promotions, highlighted itineraries and more. Advisors are invited to sign up to attend the Metro Meeting that accommodates their region and time zone and best serves their business goals and clients’ needs.
“As a former travel advisor, myself, I understand firsthand the work that goes into and is needed to support a successful business,” said Harry Sommer president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line.
“With ‘Week of You’ we took a vested approach to go beyond conventional thinking and methods to really provide our travel partners with actionable takeaways that they can use to not only better their business, but themselves as well. As I’ve said before, we are in this together, and together we will overcome the challenges from this historical year and soon deliver the vacation dreams our guests have been long waiting for.”
With new content made available daily, travel advisors are encouraged to review each lifestyle and educational workshop completed for a chance to win a commemorative gift. In addition, for every session attended, participants will be entered into a drawing for a seven-day cruise. The more sessions travel partners participate in, the greater their chances to win a cruise aboard one of the award-winning 17 ships within the Company’s fleet.
“2020 has been a challenging year for our travel partner community and we are celebrating them like never before with the launch of ‘Week of You’,” said Katina Athanasiou, chief sales officer at Norwegian Cruise Line. “Fueled by the spirit of our Partners First philosophy, which places a special focus on our travel advisors, we understand that in order for us to be at our best, our travel partners have to be at their best, which is why we’re rolling out programming that’s intended to reinvigorate, refocus and reenergize them in a holistic way.”
The five-day “Week of You” event will close out with a stellar performance from the Tony Award®-winning production “Million Dollar Quartet,” featured on Norwegian Getaway. Recorded live at the world-famous Hernando’s Hideaway in the heart of Memphis, Tenn., this special rendition of “Million Dollar Quartet” reunites the cast for the first time in several months to deliver an unforgettable performance exclusively for “Week of You” participants.
