Our business is truly about building strong and loyal relationships and our Loyal to Royal Travel Partner of the Year winners truly exemplify the meaning of partnership.

Montrose Travel, a $160+ million full-service travel and host Travel Management Company, has been named Royal Caribbean’s 2012 West Travel Partner of the Year. This commendation is appointed to an elite group of Travel Agencies within the United States and Canada, where Royal Caribbean recognizes the loyalty and commitment these Travel Partners make to their brand. For Montrose Travel, that commitment centers on a comprehensive agent training program.

“Royal Caribbean International is delighted to recognize our top performing travel partners for 2012 who have made significant contributions to Royal Caribbean’s overall success throughout the past year,” said Vicki Freed, Senior Vice President of Sales, Trade Support and Services, Royal Caribbean International. “Our business is truly about building strong and loyal relationships and our Loyal to Royal Travel Partner of the Year winners truly exemplify the meaning of partnership. We sincerely appreciate their loyalty and we continue to support the entire travel agent community through our Loyal to You Always commitment.”

Loyal to You Always is built on four principles: personal interaction and support; valuable resources that get results; increasing profits for travel agents, and award-winning travel agent education and development programs. These principles, which so closely align with Montrose Travel’s own principles, have been vital to the partnership that has grown and strengthened between Montrose Travel and Royal Caribbean. A key element of this partnership is Montrose Travel’s robust training of what it calls “Personal Vacation Planners” – travel agents, who continuously train and sharpen their travel expertise through award-winning educational programs such as Royal Caribbean’s agent education program.

“We take pride in the stellar services we provide our customers. It’s because of the close relationship with Randy Raudt [Business Development Manager, Royal Caribbean International] that we are able to offer our customers excellent deals, amenities and stateroom selections,” said Senior Cruise Vacation Planner, Margie Lopez. “Plus, a good relationship with a supplier like Royal Caribbean certainly helps me pull a few strings every once in a while accommodating some of my family groups!”

Royal Caribbean provides a world-class vacation experience with a wide range of signature onboard amenities, entertainment, and award-winning family programming. Montrose Travel’s strong educational focus on vacation planning is proving to not only enhance its partnership with Royal Caribbean, but also the vacation experience itself.

Celebrating 56 years in business, Montrose Travel, a family-owned travel management company, has grown from 14 employees in 1990 to more than 150 today and is now firmly established as a Top 50 Travel Management Company and a Top 5 Host Agency nationwide at $160+ million in sales.
