TORONTO — Celebrity Cruises has named The Travel Agent Next Door as its Celebrity Account of the Year 2019.

The award, said Brenda Yeomans, Celebrity’s Strategic Market Manager Canada, is based on exceeding revenue growth with the cruise line’s corporate brand goals in 2019, meeting and exceeding Average Price per day goals, and growing group business with Celebrity.

Yeomans also noted that The Travel Agent Next Door was recognized for encouraging its travel advisors to become Celebrity Five Star Graduates and Ambassadors for the brand.

“I am absolutely thrilled that The Travel Agent Next Door has won the Canada Account of the Year 2019,” said Yeomans. “I have enjoyed every moment of this five-year journey. From the beginning it was always about the people, and ensuring that our partnership together was a win for everyone. That dream has come true. Congratulations to all of the travel advisors and employees who have earned this award.”
