Virgin Voyages selects Zielia for itinerary planning support

Zielia announced its selection as the preferred cruise planning digital database for Virgin Voyages.

Planners working on Scarlet Lady's scheduled May introduction plus Valiant Lady and beyond will have access to detailed destination information and marketing materials for almost 350 ports in the Caribbean, Europe, Canada/New England and more.

'We are one step closer to unifying the world's cruise information and make it universally accessible and useful for cruise professionals,' said Shannon McKee, Zielia co-founder. 'Accuracy, efficiency and reliability are going to be essential for the ramping up of the cruise industry and that’s everything Zielia offers its clients.'

New features

Planners get access to timely and accurate destination materials with the click of a tab, using desktop or mobile devices. With new features such as breaking news and alerts, users have the ability to make informed decisions and necessary changes in real time, McKee said.

Zielia was created with the goal of providing a single, reliable source for cruise planners to find up-to-date information. The platform is based on the five pillars of itinerary planning: destination, port, attractions, marketing and calendar.

The website offers a digital database with information that enables cruise lines to quickly and easily choose which ports to include on their itineraries and which ones to use as homeports.

Virgin Voyage employees can now log on to access maps, breaking news/alerts, quick facts, port details, top attractions, marketing materials, transportation and calendar of events.
