The AmaBella ventured a unique itinerary that brought the travel professionals to incredible sites along the Danube.

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. – Dream Vacations/CruiseOne recently recognized its top-producing travel agency franchise owners, who are members of the homebased network’s prestigious “Circle of Excellence,” with a luxury experience aboard the AmaBella which cruised along the Danube River from Budapest to Romania.

“We wanted to reward these incredible entrepreneurs with an experience they’ll always cherish,” said Drew Daly, senior vice president and general manager for Dream Vacations/CruiseOne. “The chartered AmaWaterways cruise was the perfect avenue to celebrate their accomplishments while gaining insights they can take back to their client base.”

The cruise also toured the Balkans, including Golubac Fortress, Babaqui Rocks, Vukovar, and Belgard. Be extraordinary – together not only serves as AmaWaterways slogan but also the spirit of those on board. Throughout the week, the attendees spent time with each other reconnecting.

The Circle of Excellence reward trip provides top-selling agents not only with unique vacation experiences, but also the opportunity to network in an intimate environment with key suppliers from the travel industry, as well as members of the Dream Vacations/CruiseOne leadership team, including Co-CEO and Co-Chairman Brad Tolkin, Chief Operating Officer Debbie Fiorino, Senior Vice President and General Manager Drew Daly, Vice President of Operations Joelle Delva, Vice President of Marketing Alicia Linden, Vice President of Land Strategy and Network Performance Sean Tolkin, Vice President of Supplier Relations Josh Tolkin, Vice President of Information Technology Sandi Szalay, and Network Sales and Support Director Dawn Gillis.

“My favorite part of the Circle of Excellence trip was meeting with the supplier-partner executives onboard,” said Christy Scannell, franchise owner of Christy Scannell Dream Vacations in Lakeside, Calif. “It’s a real privilege to build relationships that not only enhance my business but my personal life as well. Traveling on a charter allowed everyone to relax. Whether it was an excursion, a meal or just cocktails, it was comforting to enjoy a conversation among like-minded colleagues.”

Dream Vacations also recently held its River Summit, which was a huge success, aboard AmaWaterways AmaSiena. Dream Vacations/CruiseOne advisors came together to learn more about what the river cruise experience is like while sailing roundtrip from Amsterdam. Other upcoming in-person learning events include Regional Trainings in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Boston, Mass., and Nashville, Tenn. and the annual National Conference aboard the Celebrity Ascent.
