All Discovery Cruising Now Accepts Bookings Directly From Canadian Travel Agents


February 22, 2011 - Fort Lauderdale, FL

All Discovery Cruising is accepting bookings directly from Canadian travel agents for Voyages of Discovery, Swan Hellenic, Swan Hellenic River Cruises, and Hebridean Island Cruises from its North American office located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The decision to receive bookings directly from Canadian travel agents, instead of through a GSA, was made to accommodate Canada's growing market interest over the years. In 2010, the Canadian region outperformed All Discovery Cruising's North American sales with a robust 50% increase in new bookings. "We look forward to working more closely with our valued Canadian travel partners. Canada has always been a strong supporter of Voyages of Discovery, and as All Discovery Cruising we are now able to offer Canadian agents a one stop shopping solution with our entire cruise collection," states Bill Dwyer, Vice President of Sales, North America. "Canadian agents are extremely enthusiastic about being able to offer our sister brands Swan Hellenic and Hebridean Island Cruises to their clients, and we feel that the market will explode," adds Dwyer.

Each brand within All Discovery's small ship cruising portfolio is unique with its own distinctive characteristics and British country elegance style. Together they share a combined focus on delivering superior enrichment cruises to the world's most beautiful destinations, including visits to "hidden gems" often missed by larger ships. Distinguished guest speakers, unparalleled worldwide itineraries, and meticulously planned shore excursion programs are signature elements of every cruise.

In the coming months, All Discovery Cruising's North American team will strengthen their relationship with Canadian agencies, and offer attractive co-op marketing and commission opportunities for key travel partners. Travel agents can become a discovery cruising expert by accessing All Discovery Cruising's easy-to-follow video-based training site www.discoverycruisingexpert.com.
