“In addition to our booking incentives, we’re increasing our trade show presence and growing our travel agent partnerships worldwide,” said Daniel Hauptfeld, managing director of Katarina Line. “Agents have been instrumental in helping us introduce more travelers to the joys of small ship cruising in the warm and clear blue waters of the Adriatic Sea and we want to make selling our cruises and land tours easier than ever.”
