Elite group of top travel advisors awarded with Crystal Cruises’ Crystal Serenity voyage
Minneapolis, Minn. (September 24, 2019) — Travel Leaders Network recognized and celebrated its 2019 top-performing Golden Circle travel advisors with a seven-night Mediterranean voyage on Crystal Cruises’ Crystal Serenity. For the 18th anniversary of the Golden Circle, the approximately 90 invited attendees sailed Rome roundtrip with visits to the beautiful destinations of Santa Margarita, Italy; Monte Carlo, Monaco; St. Tropez, France; Ajaccio, Corsica, France; Florence, Italy; and Porto Venere, Italy.
Launched in 2001, the annual Travel Leaders Network’s Golden Circle trip recognizes a small group of Associate agencies for superior support of supplier partners and of the programs and services of Travel Leaders Network.
“Our Golden Circle event is an incentive program to recognize and reward our top Associate-level agency owners for their superior support and dedication over the past year,” said Travel Leaders Network President Roger E. Block, CTC. “I look forward each year to celebrating the successes of our top advisors, while offering them another superb opportunity for networking with colleagues, our headquarters team and a select group of our key travel partners, such as Crystal Cruises.”
– Travel Leaders Network President Roger E. Block
Crystal Serenity is one of the cruise line’s most-awarded luxury ships, with a commitment to a superior level of personalized service, exceptional dining and all-inclusive amenities. Two of the Crystal representatives who hosted the event are Melissa Araya, Director, Strategic Partnerships, Crystal Cruises and Carmen Roig, Senior Vice President, Marketing & Sales, Crystal Cruises. All Golden Circle attendees were rewarded with a luxury suite as a gesture of appreciation for those agencies’ support.
Destinations selected each year for the Golden Circle adventures are always exciting locales around the world paired with a preferred partner. A new itinerary that the group has not previously experienced together is chosen so that they are able to explore additional parts of the world, as well as experience different partners, including cruise lines and tour companies that offer travel options on many continents.
Attendees also were invited to additional excursions this year, such as a day in Monaco, Nice, Eze and Monte Carlo, with a lunch on the cliff in Eze, which afforded the group amazing views. A relaxing afternoon was also spent on Nikki Beach in St. Tropez. Some personally furthered their experience with a 22-mile bike trip in Corsica, a wine tasting, hike and much more.
