Fifteen U.S. and Canadian travel agents have been selected for the cover of Royal Caribbean International’s 15th Anniversary Travel Agent Guide (T.A.G.). The travel agents are winners of the “TAG your T.A.G.” contest, held on the official Facebook page of Vicki Freed, SVP of Sales, Trade support and services for Royal Caribbean (www.Facebook.com/VickiLovesTravelAgents). The 15 travel agents were flown to Miami for a professional photo shoot and a VIP dinner party hosted by Freed.
