ASTA "Seas the Future" on Bermuda Cruise

The American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA) concluded its recent 2014 ASTA Global Convention “Seas the Future” on board Norwegian’s Breakaway on Sep. 14-21, 2014, which sailed from New York City to Bermuda and back. The Breakaway, built in 2014, offered unique onboard entertainment venues such as an Ice Bar, a challenging ropes course including a chance to walk a narrow plank 18 stories above the water, a mini-golf course and a waterpark featuring several waterslides. Travel agents also had the opportunity to enjoy an optional pre-gala dinner and reception in New York City, onboard presentations by tourism industry speakers such as journalist Peter Greenberg and NCL’s Andy Stuart, and seminars with Nolan Burris and other suppliers. Once in Bermuda, agents experienced Bermuda’s warm hospitality by attending a welcome reception hosted by the local tourism office, going on hotel site inspections, taking a ferry to a special reception at the mayor’s office in Hamilton (led by the town crier), participating in sightseeing tours and more. ASTA looks forward to the 2015 Global Convention, which will be held in Washington DC on Aug. 29 to Sep. 1.
