Sunwing Vacations Recognized by MSC Cruises as Canadian Account of the Year at 2014 MSC True Partnership's Awards

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - December 22, 2014) - Sunwing Vacations was honoured as MSC Cruises' Canadian Account of the Year at the cruise line's 2nd Annual MSC True Partnership's Awards held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida earlier this month.

Awards are given to the cruise line's top performing North American travel partners for the year based on overall business growth in revenue and guests, continuous partnership support and innovative marketing efforts that drive increased consumer awareness. Winners will be honored during a 4-day cruise on MSC Divina departing from Miami on February 14.

Accepting the award, Reg Mendes, Vice President, USA & Cruise Division, Sunwing Vacations commented, "We are extremely pleased to be receiving this award from MSC Cruises and have enjoyed our partnership with the cruise line over the past 5 years. We feel that one of the primary reasons for our success is the array of flexible travel options that we are able to combine with MSC Cruises within our fly/cruise and fly/cruise & stay packages. Vacationers can take advantage of direct flights operated by award-winning Sunwing Airlines from Toronto, Ottawa, Québec City and Montreal to Fort Lauderdale along with transfers to and from the MSC Divina at the Port of Miami."

Richard Sasso, President, MSC Cruises USA, added, "MSC's travel partners are critical to our success and we greatly appreciate the efforts all of our valued partners have made in selling and raising awareness about MSC Cruises in North America in 2014."

The award comes a month after the tour operator launched their latest dedicated cruise brochure that offers a range of Caribbean fly/cruise itineraries including Sunwing Airlines flights from nine Canadian gateways, together with fly/cruise & stay options in both Florida and Jamaica.
