Mathew Foxcroft, Account Manager for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:
“With its stunning vistas and proud maritime heritage, there is something very special about cruising from Liverpool. It is a tremendous benefit to be able to offer our agents the chance to promote our cruises from the world-famous Pier Head, and to give holidaymakers in the North West the choice of a host of exciting and exotic destinations, from right on their doorstep.
"We hope that the agents enjoyed their visit and learnt a lot more about what we do."
