ORLANDO, Fla. (Feb. 19, 2024) – Margaritaville at Sea has embarked on a dedicated initiative to create solid strategic alliances within the travel trade industry. Under the direction of newly appointed Sr. Vice President of Sales and Partnerships Frank Belzer, a team of sales managers has begun assisting professional travel advisors in booking voyages with the growing cruise line. In addition to attending trade shows and conducting one-on-one meetings with agents, the Margaritaville at Sea team has begun a series of webinars showcasing various elements of the Islander, the cruise line’s newest ship, which sets sail from Port Tampa Bay in June. Another educational offering includes the hosted “Parlay on Paradise” programming aboard their ship Paradise, where first-hand experiences complement instruction and digital sales tools for agents. To facilitate the on-demand booking process, the cruise line has also allocated significant resources to build a new platform to ensure a quick and efficient reservation process. While the new platform is being built out, Margaritaville at Sea has completely refreshed and enhanced its current booking engine, simplifying the registration process and providing new assets for agents.  

“Building relationships, providing proper training, and offering access to our product is critical to establishing productive, long-term partnerships with our friends in the trade industry,” stated Belzer. “The resources we’re allocating to this effort are significant. We appreciate the support we’ve received from travel advisors so far, and feel they recognize our commitment to their community.”    

Adding an unconventional element to the initiative, the cruise line will be participating as a sponsor or vendor at select festivals, expos, and other community events throughout Florida. During these events, the Margaritaville at Sea sales team will be joined by a local travel advisor who will be on-site to book reservations for interested travelers directly.  

According to Belzer, Margaritaville at Sea has seen a 500% increase in agent registrations since their efforts began. “We’re playing the long game and expect our investment will result in long-term support and success,” he added.
