The team at Delmar World in north Wales hosted around 40 guests for an evening with Celebrity Cruises earlier this month, focused on the line’s upcoming purpose-built Galapagos ship, Celebrity Flora.
The evening featured Celebrity’s UK and Ireland training manager, Leon Hand, recounting his time spent in the destination and Flora’s facilities – due to launch next month.
After the gathering on Wednesday evening (3 April), by Friday the agency had secured two Flora bookings totalling £27,500.
Managing director Ann Anglesea said her team also hoped to convert a further two enquiries received on the night.
“Inspiration and information are the two elements that we’ve found really make the difference for expedition sales,” she said.
“Leon knows so much – he was the perfect person to bring the Galapagos to life.”
