The website’s redesign aims to improve accessibility for users, especially those frequently on the move, by adapting to three main breakpoints. A notable addition to the website is the Aqua Experience section, designed to provide a comprehensive overview of Aqua Expeditions’ core values and services offered.

Among the website’s significant enhancements are the interactive deck plans. These plans feature clickable pop-ups for each stateroom and communal area, enabling you to show clients the best insight into the vessel’s layout. The booking pages have also been enhanced with an interactive map that shows the ship’s daily route, offering your clients a detailed preview of the itinerary as they navigate through the day-by-day schedule. These features will assist both clients and travel advisors in visualizing the ships and itineraries prior to booking.

In addition to the website’s user-centric improvements, Aqua Expeditions has also upgraded its travel advisor portal. The portal now offers an automated sign-up process for advisors, providing instant access to live online booking capabilities. This secure portal also grants access to a comprehensive Resource Library, where advisors can download essential sales materials including flyers, itineraries, rates and departure dates. The portal is designed to support bookings for both FIT and charter options, available 24/7 across all compatible devices. Advisors can further check out suite images and cabin specifics when they select sailing dates.

The upgraded portal includes access to the Aqua Academy, a collection of recorded webinars that dive into the intricacies of the ships, destinations and brand foundational pillars for travel advisors who want to expand their knowledge of Aqua Expeditions’ offerings.
