Carnival Cruise Line is bringing back their popular “Why Use a Travel Advisor (WUATA)” party in a new virtual format. The virtual WUATA party is scheduled for Thursday, April 29, 2021, at 5 p.m. EDT.
The only dedicated consumer-facing campaign promoting the value of travel advisors, WUATA parties are designed to help advisors attract new clients and strengthen existing relationships, creating sales opportunities and driving business along the way.
Travel advisors are encouraged to invite one current client and one “not yet a client” along for a fun and informative experience, which will be hosted by Mike Pack, cruise director for the industry’s most anticipated ship, Mardi Gras. Travel advisors will also hear from Carnival’s Senior Vice President of Global Trade Sales and Marketing Adolfo Perez, who will update advisors on the latest Carnival news and reinforce the line’s belief in the importance of using a travel advisor
A wide range of prizes, including gift cards, Carnival Cruise Line branded merchandise and a drawing for a free Carnival cruise, will be awarded throughout the one-hour event. Clients will also receive a special exclusive Carnival offer to use when booking their next cruise with their travel advisor.
“We’re delighted to resume our popular WUATA parties, which reinforces the value of using a travel advisor while creating a pipeline for new business,” said Perez. “Travel advisors are more important than ever and connecting more clients to our valued travel advisors is a critical win-win for our industry.”
