Fred Olsen Cruise Lines welcomed more than 200 travel agents on board Borealis in Southampton as part of the Cruise Lines International Association’s (CLIA) travel agent conference.

The largest agent cruise conference in the UK provided an opportunity for travel agents and media guests to experience Fred Olsen’s hospitality and onboard offerings first-hand.

Agents enjoyed a presentation from Geoff Ridgeon, Head of Sales at Fred Olsen Cruise Lines, a personalised ship tour with interactive elements such as a silent disco, food tastings in speciality restaurant Colours and Tastes and live music.

This was followed by a drinks reception and delicious lunch, all designed to showcase the distinctive personal touch that Fred Olsen Cruise Lines is renowned for.

Geoff Ridgeon, Head of Sales at Fred Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“We’re incredibly proud of our relationships with our agent partners, and it’s always a pleasure to welcome them on board our smaller-sized ships and show them what we do differently.

“The event was a real success, and we’re so pleased that so many agents were able to really get a taste of what Fred Olsen Cruise Lines is all about.

“I’d like to extend a big thank you to everyone who joined us for the day, as well as thank everyone involved in making this event a wonderful experience, from our teams ashore and the on board team on Borealis.”

In addition to the ship tours, the CLIA conference featured a variety of sessions and a trade fair, offering further engagement opportunities for agents to learn about Fred Olsen Cruise Lines and the wider cruise industry.

CLIA, the world’s largest cruise industry trade association, plays a pivotal role in supporting the cruise industry through policies and practices that ensure a safe, secure, healthy, and sustainable cruise environment.
