Stephen Smith, senior vice-president leisure marketing, North America for Direct/Vision Travel, has announced that two of the five Canadian agents recently named to the prestigious Celebrity Cruises Iconic Advisors Club are with Vision Travel.
Josie Pellegrini is with Vision’s Woodbridge, Ont. location, while Yvonne Douglas works out of the Kamloops, B.C. office.
“We are thrilled and very proud of these advisors, who really set the standard when it comes to promoting Celebrity and knowing what’s right for our luxury clientele,” said Smith. The awards, which are announced quarterly, are given to advisors with the highest increase in the previous quarter. “This is a remarkable achievement in the best of times, but to attain this during the pandemic is truly impressive,” says Smith.
Douglas is enthusiastic in her praise for Celebrity.
“I have been in the Travel Industry for over 30 years and have hosted many group cruises during that time, but my clients and I believe the quality and service of Celebrity Cruises make them number one in the Industry," she said. "The professionalism of the Celebrity Cruise Line representatives makes her job easier and enjoyable."
Likewise, Pellegrini says she very much enjoys working with Celebrity, a brand she and her clients trust to deliver a superlative experience.
As members of the Celebrity Cruises Iconic Advisors Club, Pellegrini and Douglas will receive 1,500 Celebrity Reward Points, invitations to exclusive regional events and other benefits.
