Costa Cruises look to boost UK awareness

Date Posted: 22 Jun 2009

Costa Cruises has attempted to boost its brand awareness in the UK by developing an online interactive programme that can be viewed by travel agents to expand their knowledge, it has been revealed.

The online training programme recently went live in the UK and provides the opportunity for agents to learn about the cruise liner in six modules, ranging from information on the company's history to fleet and itineraries, Travel Weekly reports.

Agents can work through the modules at their own speed and once they all have been passed they will be considered to be a Costa expert.

According to the publication, Costa UK managing director Marco Rosa said: "The big issue for Costa in the UK is that brand awareness is not high.

"We have almost doubled the UK marketing spend since I arrived four years ago, and tripled passengers numbers, so awareness in the trade is better than it was ... but clearly, we have still not done enough."

Among the vessels that passengers can board with Costa Cruises are Costa Marina and Costa Romantica, with the company specialising on cruises to the Mediterranean.

What our customers say

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
