Award criteria

The award is given to a newer up and coming agency that is focused on a true partnership with Celebrity Cruises.  The award is given for innovative marketing, surpassing revenue targets and having a fantastic attitude.

According to Brenda Lynne Yeomans, Celebrity Cruises strategic market manager, Canada, “TTAND has been exceptional in all of this criteria from the Leadership team to each one of the Travel Advisors. They have participated in everything Celebrity offers to better their knowledge of our brand and ships. “

She added: “Whether it has been Seminars at Sea, Five Star Training Academies, Webinars, Jet Set Fam Trips, promoting and hosting groups, they tried it all! The excitement they are creating at TTAND is wonderful and all of the hard work is coming to life.  It is the can- do attitude, the willing to take a chance, try something new, which is what I love about this agency group.”

 “We are extremely proud to have been recognized by Celebrity Cruises with the Rising Star Award,” said Flemming Friisdahl, Founder, The Travel Agent Next Door. “We look forward to continuing to grow our business with Celebrity and taking part in all of their initiatives.”
