Fred. Olsen Travel hosts GoCruise & Travel annual Top Achievers on Cunard's Queen Victoria
Fred. Olsen Travel has honoured its franchisees during its annual GoCruise & Travel Top Achievers Celebration which took place onboard Cunard’s Queen Victoria from 15th to 18th September 2023.
The trip was hosted by Colin Martin-Weekes, GoCruise & Travel Franchise General Manager, who was joined by members of Fred. Olsen Travel’s head office support teams as well as the company’s top ten franchisees who were congratulated on last year’s impressive business performance results.
During the four-night sailing from Southampton to Amsterdam, franchisees enjoyed a celebration drinks reception and dinner to recognise their achievements as well as a detailed business session designed to help them move forward with their 2023/2024 plans. There was also plenty of free time for everyone to experience all the fabulous sights and sounds that Amsterdam and Queen Victoria have to offer.
“It was a pleasure to host our top achievers for 2022 in collaboration with our wonderful trade partner Cunard. It is important that our franchisees feel appreciated and are congratulated on the amazing job they do with their businesses so this was the perfect fit to showcase a brilliant product and to enjoy the celebrations of a job well done! We are so very proud of all their achievements.”
Colin Martin-Weekes, GoCruise & Travel Franchise General Manager
Dan Jones, Cunard Business Manager, added: “We were delighted to host this year’s GoCruise & Travel Top Achievers Celebration on board our elegant Queen Victoria, further strengthening Cunard’s commitment to the travel agent community in providing engaging experiences across our fleet. This year’s top achievers are a truly exceptional set of talented individuals and I am very proud to have worked alongside them as they grew their businesses over the past year. Whether they are regular Cunarders or this was their first time on board one of our Queens, it was an absolute delight to see the franchisees enjoying their time on board joining in with a variety of activities - from fencing to dancing the night away at the silent disco, enjoying a quiz in the Golden Lion pub, or our signature afternoon tea in the Queens room. It’s fantastic to see agents enjoying the Cunard experience which helps to debunk any misconceptions that may surround sailing with Cunard.”
