The trip of “Protagonists of the web” was organized by Costa Cruises from June 22nd to 24th from Savona to Barcelona, passing through Marseille, which is dedicated to the online travel agencies (OTA) specialized in the cruise segment.
On board Costa Diadema, the shipping company has scheduled a two-night trip for the travel agents, creating the right mix between moments of confrontation and fun on board. After the welcome aperitif and the dinner reserved for the agents at the Florentine restaurant on deck 3, guests went wild at the disco dance, with the Fluo Digital Pool Party by the pool.
The following day, the Costa Cruises OTA team – composed of Elisa Barbieri, Sales manager, Massimo Filetti, Sales Quality and Performance Manager and Mirco Vassallo, Head of Direct sales & OTA – dedicated an ad hoc meeting to online travel agents. Among the participants of “Protagonists of the Web”, there was also the Taoticket staff, represented by about 20 people. It was an opportunity to take stock of the situation, illustrate the news from the shipping company dedicated to the agencies, to be able to collect the reflections of the agents and answer their technical questions concerning the contents of the offer. During the meeting there were plenty of surprises, such as the drawing of a cruise for one of the participants in the meeting.
“We want to thank Costa Cruises for organizing this event.” said Matteo Lorusso, system administrator and SEO Social Media Management of Taoticket Srl, “We had the opportunity to get to know and experience the ship, and at the same time confront ourselves with the company’s dedicated team for being able to be updated on the programming.”
After the meeting, there was also time for an excursion to discover Marseille, one of the main ports of the Mediterranean, to explore the ancient center, the churches and the historic quarters of a city of great charm. Those who preferred to stay on board Costa Diadema, were able to get to know the “behind the scenes” of the ship through a guided tour and then continued by spending the day between the pool, gym, drinking a cocktail at the Aperol Spritz Bar or in one of the other rooms of the ship, or have chosen to take part in the numerous activities that take place on board. Until dinner at the restaurant, and then continue with the Revival Party at the disco.
The ship resumed sailing until it reached Barcelona, where the agents landed and were able to admire the beauty of the Catalan city and take a walk on the Rambla before returning to their respective destinations.
