My Stories

A Day in the Life of Series

From the desk of Jaimie Hanson


A lot of my day as a travel advisor involves taking the time to learn about as many different destinations, resorts, and travel suppliers as possible. This keeps me current and relevant with all of the things going on throughout the industry and ready to provide you with the most up-to-date information possible. 

Sometimes, this comes in the form of a FAM (Familiarization trips) or if it’s a  Cruise Line they call it a Semester at Sea. These trips, while certainly fun and a great #workperk, are meant for us to have the ability to take a deep dive into a destination/resort/ship so we can learn as much as possible about the product, and in turn better serve you as a client. 

Like everything else, this looked a lot different over the past year with travel restrictions in place. And these #workperks weren’t able to happen as they should. Still, so many suppliers stepped it up and became very creative in how they continued to make sure we 

A few weeks ago, I attended an entirely virtual seminar at Sea with Royal Caribbean International. While we couldn’t be on board, we could still learn a ton about Royal Caribbean's Return to Sea! 

Here's what we covered: 

We took a complete walking tour of Royal Caribbean's private island, Perfect Day at Coco Cay. This island is incredible! It recently underwent a colossal revitalization and is a whole destination in its self. It has five distinct areas, appealing to all members of the family.

We also did a complete walking tour of an Oasis Class Ship! The Oasis Class ships are some of the biggest at Sea. Almost like a little floating city of fun! They have seven distinct neighborhoods on board and more to do than you can get done in a single visit. I know this because I’ve tried, and I can’t wait to sail again.

Following our tours, we had a few guest speakers talk about other aspects of the cruising experience. Some highlights included a deep look into Royal Caribbean’s exceptional programs for guests with disabilities and some of their Alaskan Cruise Tour options.

The presentation ended with a speaker from the Royal Caribbean Groups and the value of booking your group on one of these unique ships. It certainly would be a great way to celebrate at Sea

Cruising will be back very soon (starting June 2021 for select ships), Royal Caribbean’s deployment is currently open for booking into 2023. In general, the earlier you book, the better the rates will be. Want even more information? Check it out here: Royal Caribbean 2021/2022 Digital Brochure
