From an elite group of travel agencies across the U.S. and Canada, Montrose Travel has been selected as Royal Caribbean International’s (RCI) 2012 West Travel Partner of the Year. The award, also called the Loyal to Royal Partner of the Year award, commends agencies for their loyalty to and profitable partnership with the cruise line.
RCI’s program of partnership with travel agencies, called Loyal to You Always, is founded on personal interaction, result-yielding resources, increasing profits for travel agents and travel agent education. In selecting Montrose for the award, the cruise line commended the agency for its investment in training, which uses RCI’s agent education program to prepare agents.
“We take pride in the stellar services we provide our customers,” said Margie Lopez, senior cruise vacation planner for Montrose. “It’s because of the close relationship with Randy Raudt [RCI’s business development manager] that we are able to offer our customers excellent deals, amenities and stateroom selections.”
