Princess Cruises meet Travelbiz to promote Irish sales
26th May 2017 - 3:30pm
Following the introduction of Princess Cruise’s launch of Euro pricing for travel agents in the Republic of Ireland, Tony Roberts (Vice president Princess Cruises UK & Europe) and Rachel Poultney (Director of sales UK & Ireland) were in Dublin this afternoon to meet Don Shearer (CEO Travelbiz) and outline their plans for the Irish market. With 18 ships in the fleet and 3 new builds on order taking delivery in 2019, 2020 and 2022, Princess Cruises are serious about growing their Irish business in Ireland, supporting the trade through a number of initiatives to complement the recent introduction of Euro pricing.
Tony and Rachel will have a dedicated team to support the Irish business including a new head of sales for the Irish trade. Princess will have trade visits in June of this year on board the Caribbean Princess, with more to come! There will also be training and workshop programmes, plus dedicated itineraries from the UK into both Cork and Dublin in 2018!
Travelbiz will be working with the Princess Cruises team in bringing you information through the agent communication programme which includes weekly updates about news, competitions, promotions and campaign updates for agents to take advantage of when selling to clients.
Rachel Poultney said: “We’ll be focussing on building relationships and supporting our partners in Ireland. We will soon be releasing details of our Ireland store visit programme and are looking forward to supporting the trade in any way we can.”
Tony Roberts (Vice president Princess Cruises UK & Europe) said: “The introduction of the new Euro pricing is the first step towards Princess’ concerted effort to expand within the Irish market. We believe that there is a demand for Princess across the country and by making it easier for agents to sell our cruises we are certain that we can help agents grow their business.”
