Atlas Ocean Voyages today launches its debut travel advisor portal called Atlas Advisor Central.
The portal is open now ahead of the debut of World Navigator, Atlas Ocean Voyages’ inaugural ship that will be unveiled in about nine months.
Atlas Advisor Central includes information and offers about the new cruise line, including its protocols and policies, along with recorded webinars and marketing materials that advisors can use with their client communications. The portal will be broken up into four main sections, “Learn, Market, Sell, and Destination MBA.”
The first webinar, a professional development series, will introduce advisors to the brand with 20-minute sessions hosted by members of the Atlas sales team.
“Atlas Advisor Central is a one-stop resource center dedicated to helping Travel Advisors market and sell luxe-adventure cruising to travelers planning their return to travel,” said Brandon Townsley, vice president of sales and trade partnerships.
The line earlier this month floated out World Navigator, its debut ship set to be unveiled in about nine months. The ship, a small expedition ship that can accommodate up to 196 guests, will now head to wet dock where it will continue to get ready for its debut.
That ship is the second of five ships currently on order for the line. The others, World Seeker, World Adventurer, and World Discoverer, will debut by the end of 2023.
All bookings are done with Atlas’ all-inclusive fare that includes round-trip airfare, gratuities, WiFi, shore excursions, and more. Last month, the line also announced that its all-inclusive fare will include emergency medical evacuation and return-home insurance when the line launches next year.
The fare will include emergency medical evacuation from the ship to a hospital or treatment center on shore, along with the cost of returning home or to a different medical facility close to home.
Atlas is also offering 15% commission for its advisor partners on all bookings.
