More than 120 agents "New To Cruise" agents attended the event, which was held in the presence of a BA Concord, no less! The Festival exposed the agents to a wide variety of different cruise lines including Celebrity, Silverseas and Carnival (all of whom sail from Port Everglades) and comprised of several informal networking sessions and more formal conference speaker slots ultimately demystifying the world of cruise. As the only destination present at the Festival, the event offered a fantastic platform for Greater Fort Lauderdale to showcase the all-important cruise-and-stay side to cruises and those nights pre- and post- cruise that can either make or break the trip. Targeting agents at the very beginning of their cruise training journey, is a great way to ensure Greater Fort Lauderdale remains top of mind throughout.
With Port Everglades, the third largest cruise port in the world based in the heart of Greater Fort Lauderdale, the area offers unrivalled opportunities for an exciting stay either pre-or-post a cruise, from exploring the waterways, to beer tasting, mural touring and flying through the Everglades on an airboat tour!
