Cruiseabout Ponsonby Cruises to Success
Cruiseabout Ponsonby manager, Sue Grigg, has been named Cruise Consultant of the Year at the prestigious International Cruise Council Australasia (ICCA) annual awards ceremony, held in Sydney on 11 February 2012.
Voted as the New Zealand winner by the cruise line members of the ICCA, Sue’s twenty years of experience in the travel industry and extensive cruising knowledge put her above the rest and she is ecstatic about the win.
“To be recognised by New Zealand’s cruise industry is very rewarding. I love helping my customers book their dream holiday and to be rewarded for doing something I love is fantastic.
“The demand for cruising from Kiwis continues to grow year on year and I’m very proud to be part of one of New Zealand’s leading cruising teams.”
Fifteen awards across seven categories were presented to the industry’s top travel consultants and agencies at the gala event, with Sue beating out four other finalists to be named as the winner in the Cruise Consultant of the Year category. Cruiseabout Ponsonby also featured as a finalist in the New Zealand Cruise Agency of the Year award.
Tony Smith, New Zealand representative of the ICCA board, believes that this is a very auspicious award of which Ms Grigg was a deserving winner.
“To even be nominated for this award is an achievement in itself. Winning shows Sue’s commitment and dedication both to the cruising industry and to her agency.”
