Seattle, WA (April 28, 2010)– Cruise West, the world’s leading provider of small-ship explorations to the most fascinating destinations on earth, announces Linda Androlia of Sunstone Tours and Cruises as the Top Producing Independent Agent for 2009. This is the fourth consecutive year that Androlia has earned the top spot.
Androlia, a home based agent who has been in the travel business since 1989, owns Sunstone Tours and Cruises. She attributes her success to a sales strategy that is targeted towards luxury / adventure cruisers.
“Cruise West provides an up close and personal experience to each destination they visit. My clients seek out enrichment on their vacation, which includes learning first-hand knowledge about the region and ports, cultural interaction and activities that take advantage of the destinations attributes, remarked Androlia. “Cruise West provides all this on comfortable ships offering high quality dining and onboard naturalists. My clients come back raving about their trip and dreaming about their next voyage. Cruise West makes me a hero.”
Cruise West’s President and CEO Dietmar Wertanzl cites Androlia as a role model for all travel agents. “Linda continually impresses me. Year over year Linda beats her personal best in selling Cruise West voyages. She is a perfect example of when an agent can articulate the value of exploration voyages the commissions become robust. It’s important to remember that a higher priced voyage means a higher commission – and travel sellers such as Sunstone Tours understand this.”
