Aurora Expeditions’ visit to New Zealand last week has served the double purpose of inspiring clients and educating the trade, says director of sales – Asia Pacific, Steve McLaughlin.
‘We have encouraged agents to come with their clients to sessions at the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron (Auckland). We know it can be hard to sell something if you don’t know it well, so we’re here to help.
Having recently experienced an Aurora Expeditions cruise in the UK, World Journeys director Chris Lyons has written a blog about his journey to becoming a committed fan of cruising in remote regions.
‘Exploring wild places such as the Outer Hebrides, it was great to be able to go on Zodiac excursions with knowledgeable guides, and return to the warmth and comfort of the ship each evening,’ Lyons says. ‘The landscapes are wild and rugged, and the history is fascinating – from Neolithic ruins to the remnants of Viking settlements. The birdlife was prolific too, from the puffins, to enormous concentrations of gannets, guillemots, terns, cormorants and auks. ‘
