The ultimate agent guide to expedition cruising

While cruises may be off the cards right now due to the COVID-19 pandemic, that doesn’t mean travellers can’t start dreaming about their next sailing adventure.

In fact, it appears many holidaymakers are already doing so, given the recent data coming out of the cruise sector.

This pent-up appetite for cruising is only going to get bigger as the industry edges its way closer to resuming operations, and it’s important that travel agents are ready and raring to go.

One of the sectors that has been particularly lucrative for agents is expedition cruising, thanks to its high-value bookings and a decent repeat rate of affluent guests.

So, Travel Weekly has teamed up with nine of the major players to provide agents with a one-stop resource for expedition cruising.

Complementing Travel Weekly’s most recent magazine issue, the expedition cruising supplement covers everything from destinations, shore excursions, and cultural and social initiatives, to accommodation, dining, sustainability, and technology.

Better still, we’ve provided the key facts – consider it a bit of a cheat sheet, if you will – for each of the nine expedition cruise lines, so agents can sell the sector effectively and with confidence once things restart.
