Miami, FL, January 15, 2009 â€“ As part of the lineâ€™s Celebration of Savings, Oceania Cruises is pleased to launch the Suite Escapes Give-A-Way for its travel agent partners. Every booking that an agent makes on one of the line’s 18 selected European promotional voyages will be eligible for the drawing in which the winners will receive a cruise in a Penthouse Suite and round-trip Business Class airfare for themselves and a guest.
â€œWe want to make selling the Oceania Cruises experience personally rewarding for our agent partners in addition to being financially rewarding. What could be more rewarding than an Oceania Cruises vacation in a Penthouse Suite and business class air?â€ stated Jeff Drew, Senior Vice President of Sales for Oceania Cruises.
For each booking that is made on any one of the 18 eligible 2009 European Collection sail dates, the agent of record will be entered into the drawing. The promotion runs through March 31st and one winner will be selected during the first week of February, March and April from the previous monthâ€™s bookings. The lucky winners will be announced via the dedicated online Travel Agent Center at Agent.OceaniaCruises.com.
â€œEvery agent should be visiting our Travel Agent Center on a regular basis. From making reservations, posting payments and downloading marketing materials, it is an agentâ€™s best friend. Any agent that is not registered there should do so quickly,â€ added Drew.
