How many times have you worked Cruise Expo with Brentwood Travel?
How long have you been with Viking Cruises?
I started with Viking in 2000 as a chef, then later became a Hotel Manager. Now, I am a Director of Business Development.
What made you want to work for Viking Cruises?
Viking offers great work conditions in a professional team who is determined to become the best in the world! I love feeling valued and appreciated as an employee, while being given the ability to add my own creativity and expertise. Also, it's great to work for a company that embraces modern technology and the latest trends.
What do you feel is the main thing that sets Viking Cruises apart from your competition?
Viking sets itself apart by not trying to be ‘everything to everyone’.
We have innovative and industry-changing ship designs that offer a wide selection of different cabin categories. Every crewmember on board is a Viking employee and trained by our management, and Viking owns and operates all ships (except Mekong and Egypt).
We offer ‘Behind the Scenes’ shore excursions and have limited access to UNESCO world heritage sites. On board, we have award-winning cuisine made fresh with locally sourced ingredients.
Share a memory from one of your favorite trips with Viking Cruises:
My most unforgettable journey was Amsterdam to Vienna in 2001 when I met my wife for the first time on board. Still my very favorite destination - Rhine and Danube
Describe a client who would be the perfect fit for Viking Cruises:
Viking is perfect for the client who is open-minded and curious. Someone who is interested in Europe’s art, music, culture, literature, and culinary world, but also wants to meet the people of the destination.
Ann and Dagmar spent 8 nights on the Rhine in Europe on their Viking River Cruise.
