Top-producing agents from more than 60 agencies and 10 national accounts attended the first annual Regent Seven Seas Council onboard the newly refurbished Seven Seas Voyager and at The Ritz-Carlton in Marina Del Rey, Calif.
"If anything, agents are even more important to us today because they are on the front lines," said Mark Conroy, president of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. "This [event] is a way of saying thank you very much for your business."
Agents were treated to a private concert of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, lavish dinners, informative sessions with Regent’s executives and celebrity lecturers and were given tours of the Voyager’s refurbishments prior to its 2009 World Cruise departure.
