January 2021 saw some notable ocean cruise news: Royal Caribbean sold the Azamara brand. Let's see what this all means.
We're starting to see some things to look forward to. Recently, I posted a blog about turning the corner and how things will change. So let's turn our attention what to look forward to. Please note that much of this information is from Travel Weekly magazine.
Today we hear from top travel suppliers. Here's the report from day two of the Avoya Travel Conference 2018. Here's what we did on our first day. Believe it or not we covered even more today. What a great opportunity to learn from industry leaders. And we thought you'd like to learn a bit as well.
In our first post of this series we provided an overview of the Azamara Quest. In this post, we'll give a brief description of some of the ports. Finally we'll recommend who we think would be most happy with Azamara.
Interested in learning about some new cruise destinations? Want to end "been there done that" syndrome? In my 2017 travel trends post here, I identified a growing trend across many suppliers. Here's an excerpt from that post:
We've all seen the TV advertisements for Royal Caribbean or Carnival right? If you are a certain age, you're mail box is probably inundated with marketing materials from Viking and Oceania. And if you are looking at Bridal magazines, you're no doubt familiar with Sandals resorts. So as a consumer, the question is - who else is out there and how do you find them? For our purposes we'll use the term "alternative suppliers" as those that don't advertise direct to consumers.
