The annual Intercruises India & Indian Ocean (INIO) regional workshop was recently held in Mauritius, bringing together representatives from South Africa, Sri Lanka, Mauritius and the Intercruises Global Platform to discuss new product trends and  customizing experiences for specific cruise brands and guest demographics.

Elena Garcia, Regional Manager India & Indian Ocean, led the workshop and commented: “The cruise industry is growing and changing fast, with the needs of the cruise lines and their guests always evolving. This workshop was about sharing experiences and expertise on how to ride this wave of change.”

Carmen Morosan, Global Shorex Manager, was also at the workshop; “Sharing product expertise and client insights across Intercruises destinations, countries and regions is crucial for us to deliver the best possible experiences to cruise lines and their guests.

All Intercruises teams worldwide are developing new and innovative tours that can be adapted and replicated to work in different destinations or with different cruise lines and guest demographics – this workshop provided the platform to further spread this message.”

During the two day workshop, the team also received updated Health & Safety training, participated in local site inspections and attended a call at Port Louis, as well as enjoying a Mauritian cooking class and various other team building activities.


Logistics for the workshop were handled by the local Intercruises Mauritius team, which in January this year received the Best DMC 2016 Award from, the largest online tourism website for Mauritius.
