MSC Cruises, the Swiss-based world’s largest privately-owned cruise line and market leader in Europe, South America and South Africa, is hosting key travel business partners from across the world for a three-day reward and educational cruise around the Western Med.
As part of MSC Cruises’ annual All Stars of the Sea event, nearly 2,000 key partners of MSC Cruises will embark in Genoa on a three-day cruise on board MSC Fantasia. Starting this Sunday, November 13, the cruise will call first Barcelona then Marseille, arriving back in Genoa on November 16. More than 200 MSC Cruises sales representatives from 29 markets will also be on board, as well as many airline partners and over 40 trade media outlets.
Gianni Onorato, MSC Cruises’ Chief Executive Officer, said: “As every year, we are extremely proud to bring together our key partners at sea and reward them for the excellent work that they carry out with their clients and our guests. All Stars of the Sea offers a unique platform for our commercial team and travel agents to interact, discuss topics of mutual interest, and learn how to support each other’s business objectives even more. Thanks to the many networking sessions and exciting activities that we have arranged, we are confident that this year’s edition will allow us to further expand these relationships and start building together yet another year of mutual growth.”
The three-day program at sea includes MSC Academy product sessions that have been specifically tailored to allow all partners to interact and discuss different topics of interest, such as growth perspectives across different markets, product and destination development, as well as fly & cruise options.
Award ceremonies will also be held every night to recognize the amazing work carried out by the best travel agent partners in each market. Award categories include Best Network Agent, Best MSC Yacht Club Producer and Best Group Producer, amongst other.
MSC Cruises’ guests will also get plenty of opportunities to enjoy themselves and network at the receptions, dinners and shore excursions that have been organised specifically to allow them to experience the unique MSC Cruises product. They will also enjoy the countless cultural, leisure and entertainment experiences that MSC Fantasia has to offer during their free time.
