Virgin Voyages has recruited ex-Princess Cruises sales rep Andrea Jones to support agents in the south of the UK.
She will take over as sales manager from Gemma Smith, who has left the line to take up an opportunity outside of travel.
Jones was most recently territory business manager Wales and South West at Princess Cruises and brings more than 25 years of industry experience to her new position – including 18 in travel retail and seven in the cruise sector.
"Andrea is a well respected member of the travel community and we are excited for the future building on the amazing work of Gemma," said Shane Riley, Virgin Voyages associate vice-president of international sales.
"We’ll be forever grateful for Gemma’s commitment and successes at Virgin Voyages. She’ll always remain part of the Virgin Voyages family."
