Carnival Cruise Lines’ field sales force and group sales department have been named “best of the best” by CruiseOne/Cruises, Inc., a leading travel agent consortia comprised of top travel agencies in the U.S. and Canada.

            This marks the 10th time in 12 years that Carnival’s group sales department has received this honor.

            The awards, which were presented at the organization’s annual conference, were based on a survey of hundreds of Cruises Inc./CruiseOne members who were asked to rate cruise lines in a variety of service- and product-related categories. Carnival’s field sales force and group sales department received more first place votes than any other cruise line.

            CruiseOne/Cruises, Inc. executives were at Carnival’s Miami offices earlier this week to present the cruise line with their awards.  Pictured at the awards reception are (from left):  World Travel Holdings President David Crooks; Carnival’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Guest Services Lynn Torrent; Vice President of Group Sales and Administration Cherie Weinstein; and Vice President of Strategic Partnerships and Brand Development Edie Bornstein; and CruiseOne/Cruises, Inc. Senior Vice President – General Manager Dwain K. Wall.
