Sunwing is NCL’s Top Canadian Tour Operator Partner of the year

TORONTO — Sunwing is tops in Norwegian Cruise Line’s book, having been named its Wholesaler/Tour Operator Partner of the Year.

Each year, the cruise line recognizes its top Canadian travel partners with awards across a variety of categories. This year, NCL honoured Sunwing for its many years of partnership after experiencing its best year ever in 2019, said Derek Lloyd, Norwegian Cruise Line’s National Director of Sales for Canada.

“Sunwing has been a great partner for Norwegian Cruise Line for many years now, and 2019 was our best ever. Their dedication of putting together a great value package including a Norwegian Cruise, Sunwing flight and transfers makes it simple for Canadians who want a one-stop-shopping package to get away from our winters!”

Sunwing’s Vice President of USA and Cruises, Reg Mendes, added: “We’re honoured to have been recognized as Norwegian Cruise Line’s Canadian Wholesaler/Tour Operator Partner of the Year. Since Sunwing started offering cruise packages with NCL in 2015, their signature Freestyle Cruising® concept has become a favourite amongst Canadian sun-seekers.”

Travellers looking to set sail this winter can choose from cruise packages onboard the Norwegian Escape, with departures from Toronto, Montreal, Moncton and Quebec City; and the Norwegian Encore, with packages from Toronto, Montreal and Quebec City. From now until February 19, 2020, guests can save up to $780 per couple on Norwegian Encore cruise packages departing from Toronto and March 1, 2020, and March 8, 2020.
