Cruiseabout Wins at Cruise Awards
Here at Cruiseabout we're celebrating after receiving top accolades at the esteemed Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) annual awards ceremony, including Rising Star of the Year and second runner up for Cruise Agency of the Year, in Sydney earlier this month.
Cruiseabout Pukekohe consultant, Billy Gutierrez, took the top honours ahead of two other finalists to be named Rising Star of the Year and is thrilled with the win.
“I have been in the travel industry for over 11 years, including over four years in the cruise industry, most recently with Cruiseabout Pukekohe. I’m very passionate about cruising and to be able to share my expertise while building long-term relationships with my clients is an absolute honour.”
Cruiseabout Takapuna received the bronze award for Cruise Agency of the Year. Brand leader, Jessica Allan, said it was a great achievement for a relatively new store and it displays the importance of customer service and maintaining great supplier relationships.
“For a store that’s only been open for two years, this is a great achievement and a credit to the team who are extremely passionate about what they do each day.
“This is also the second consecutive year that a Cruiseabout consultant has received the Rising Star of the Year award and this year, we had two finalists. It’s great to see that the training and investment that we put into our consultants really pays off and that they are experts in their field,” Mrs Allan said.
