Their passion for our business is exemplary and their support means a great deal to everyone at Celebrity.
Hauppauge, NY (PRWEB) December 19, 2016
Direct Line Cruises, Inc., one of the largest cruise travel agencies in the U.S., was named Eastern Region Account of the Year by Celebrity Cruises, the premium brand of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. In announcing their annual awards, Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, President and CEO of Celebrity Cruises said, “The superb travel partners that we work with on a daily basis are the backbone of our business” and Keith Lane, Vice President of Sales added, “Their passion for our business is exemplary and their support means a great deal to everyone at Celebrity.”
In a somewhat ironic coincidence, Celebrity Cruises and its sister company, Royal Caribbean International, themselves received multiple honors from industry professionals attending the Travel Weekly Readers Choice Awards on the same day that Celebrity Cruises announced their travel agency honorees. Helen Coiro (President of Direct Line Cruises) who attended the Travel Weekly event in New York City as a guest of Royal Caribbean International was, “…overjoyed each time that Vicki Freed [Royal Caribbean’s Senior VP of Sales, Trade Support and Service] and Dondra Ritzenthaler [Ms. Freed’s counterpart at Celebrity Cruises] stepped up to the stage to accept another well-deserved award on behalf of their respective companies.” Regarding future prospects for 2017, Ms. Coiro concluded, “We are looking forward to further building upon our long-established partnership with these two fine brands which have consistently maintained a standard of excellence in everything they do.”
