Royal Caribbean team Ireland talk to Travelbiz


Don Shearer ( had the great pleasure of speaking to Stuart Byron (Director of Sales UK Ireland Spain) and Jennifer Callister (Head Ireland) to get an insight on how this year is fairing for the team in Ireland and what the future holds in these ever changing and challenging times.


Stuart was really upbeat on how the business is fairing in Ireland despite all that we are facing and what we have gone through in 2021. The forward bookings for Winter 2021/22 are really encouraging with a fantastic level of support from the trade in Ireland with the new programme from Barbados already full on some dates! Stuart and Jennifer also made reference to the extension of the Royal ‘Cruise with confidence’ extension effective from 1st February 2021, for all bookings created by 30th April 2021, on sailings on or before 30th April, 2022, guests will have the flexibility to cancel their cruise up to 48 hours prior to sailing and receive a full credit of the cruise fare paid. This degree of flexibility for guests and the Club Rewards Incentive where agents can earn €22 for every 2022 booking made, which is running until the 28th of February, has really given the business a great focus with the trade for encouraging a lot of ‘new to cruise’ bookings.


Stuart, Jennifer, Michelle and Holly would like to thanks the trade in Ireland for their amazing support and look forward to reengaging with you all in True Royal Fashion when it’s safe to do so.
