Pullmantur Cruises created training sessions for 250 Spanish travel agents at which they were invited to go on a sensory trip exploring the British Islands, one of the line’s newest itineraries for summer 2019.

The training sessions took place this week at Pullmantur offices, which were transformed into an authentic British pub (The Explorer) especially for the occasion and featured some of the places featuring on Zenith’s 14-night trip with inspirational videos, images, music, gastronomy and drinks.

Part of Pullmantur’s Exclusive Destinations - Dreams that become Journey's sub-brand, the itineraries feature boutique ports and themed onboard and shoreside activities linked to immersion of the destinations.
