When Royal Caribbean International wins, so too does the travel industry because the cruise company is celebrating its TWO NTIA wins on the weekend with a special discount for consultants.

In cased you missed the big news, Royal Caribbean scored two gongs at the industry night, one for being the ‘Best Cruise Operator, International’ and one for ‘Best Cruise Operator, Domestic’.

To celebrate, the cruise line is offering a 5 percent bonus discount on Travel Agents Rates on select 2017/18 cruises when booked before 31 July 2017. Click here for more information.

But more importantly and what everyone wants to know – how did the cruise line manage to win two highly coveted awards?

Royal Caribbean’s Managing Director in Australia and New Zealand, Adam Armstrong answers:


What does winning this award mean to him?

Royal Caribbean

It’s a great honour to have been recognised, and we are truly grateful to the industry for your ongoing support, and to our guests – past, present and future.


What was it he thinks helped the cruise company win this year?

Royal Caribbean

Without our partners in the industry, we couldn’t be here today, 10 years later and still pushing the boundaries of what people thought was possible on a cruise holiday.

Our Travel Agent partners play a huge role in the success of our cruise brand sailing here in Australia and around the world.
