Virgin Voyages is offering weekly giveaways on its “SeaCiety” Facebook group for travel advisors.
To celebrate National Travel Advisor Day and National Travel & Tourism Week, Virgin Voyages will offer branded “swag” to travel advisors throughout the month of May.
Weekly winners will be announced each Thursday.
First Mates Appreciation Month will also include special messages to travel advisors from crew members and executive leaders. Additionally, Virgin Voyages’ sales managers will host meet-and-greet events in Tampa, Orlando, Miami, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Dallas, Long Beach, CA, and Stamford, CT.
“We have the most incredible partners in our First Mates (travel advisors), and there’s no better way to say thank you than with an entire appreciation month that honors their work and commitment to the Virgin brand,” John Diorio, Virgin Voyages’ v.p. of North American sales, said in a press statement. “We’ve built an extensive agent community and are always seeking new opportunities to engage with First Mates and welcome new advisors into the program.”
Virgin Voyages’ First Mates program includes sales commissions, no NCFs, and educational opportunities. After registering as a First Mate, travel advisors can book Circles (groups of 10 or more cabins), engage with brand representative on SeaCiety, and join Seacademy, a multi-tiered educational program.
Perks for completing the program include bonus commission vouchers, exclusive rates on future cruises, Sailor Loot (on-board credits), and access to brand events and ship launches. Participating travel advisors also get priority status for future familiarization trips.
