Late last month, Silversea Cruises held its inaugural ‘Campioni di Silversea’ event in Melbourne, designed to reward the cruise line’s top travel agency achievers for the highest sales made each year.
Representatives from Silversea’s top 20 agencies for 2019 were flown to Melbourne in business-class comfort for a luxurious progressive dinner around the city.
The indulgent program of events included return business-class flights to Melbourne, return helicopter transfers to Crown Towers, hair/make-up and pamper sessions, and Rolls-Royce transfers to the evening dinner locations.
The agents were treated to an entreé in the Royal Botanic Gardens with a string quartet and opera singer who serenaded with Italian songs from a gondola, followed by the main course at the award-winning Grossi Florentino with paired wines.
The top-selling agents were then awarded before enjoying dessert at Brunetti, Flinders Lane, featuring a huge Silversea ice sculpture and an Italian accordion player – accompanied by cocktails, of course.
Steve Richards, director of sales for Australia and New Zealand at Silversea, said: “It was such a privilege to reward our top 20 selling agencies in 2019 for their dedication to Silversea at such a special inaugural event.
“As this is now an annual program, our 2020 Campioni is already well underway and we look forward to rewarding the top 20 agencies next year. For further details on this program, contact your BDM.”
