The agents won prizes including an Alaska fam trip place, a luxury spa day, a bottle of specially crafted gin to celebrate the lines anniversary, a “VIP ship visit” which includes some “surprise touches”, and a hosted team night out.

Farndell encouraged agents to continue to make bookings to be in with a chance of winning and reminded trade partners that even if they didn’t win this week, their entry will roll over to next week’s prize draw.
