Royal Caribbean International International celebrated the brand’s 50th birthday and 5th birthday of its award-winning, agent incentive scheme, Club Rewards. 30 of the brand’s top agency partners and Irish Club Rewards members celebrated at the luxury 5* Cliff House Hotel, Waterford on Tuesday 17th Sep 19.  The event was, without question, a highlight in the travel trade calendar.

 

The exclusive festivities kicked off with an action-packed sea kayaking race. Teams had to compete against time to collect codes on buoys and speed back to shore. In glorious sunshine, attendees could have been in Coco Cay!

 

Travelbiz’s Shane Cullen was part of the winning team alongside Martin McKinnon, Deirdre Sweeny, Holly Rice, Paul Hackett, Mary McKenna, Tom Britton and Sharon Thompson. In a strategy that paid off, Tom Britain was sent to the furthest buoys to recover the codes (the downside for being an Ironman competitor). Martin McKinnon had the short end of the oar, having to paddle the two-man kayak solo while Shane snapped photos with the camera (not due to laziness) rather as a dedicated professional.
