The STAR Program works to curate a group of the industry’s most dedicated and professional travel advisors through an application and review process that involves reference checks and an evaluation of current business practices. Those chosen to participate receive complimentary conference registration and hotel nights, as well as a customized schedule of meetings with representatives from destinations, tour operators, airlines, cruise lines, and more, from all over the world.
“Hearing you are being recognized for your level of talent for something you love to do, is gratifying and humbling.”
While attending CruiseWorld, Lisa Rossmeissl will hear keynote addresses on the state of the industry from Arnold Donald, CEO of Carnival Corporation; Richard D. Fain, Chairman & CEO of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd.; and Frank Del Rio, President & CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. STARs will also learn of cutting edge destinations and products, take part in VIP guided tours of a variety of the best cruise ships on the water, and form connections with high-level personnel from different travel companies.
All of these valuable experiences combine to keep STAR advisors up to date with the latest industry trends and best practices. This allows them to continue to provide unique itineraries to their clients and exceed client travel expectations.
