ITC students experience Auckland’s busy cruise ship season

Posted on 23/05/2017 by

When cruise travellers anchored in Auckland, several ITC students were among the check-in agents who helped them disembark and board their vessel. 

Many cruise ship holidaymakers were greeted by enthusiastic ITC students when they disembarked and boarded in Auckland over the busy cruise season.

“Students were required to check passengers onto the cruise ships and also give directions to passengers at the cruise terminals,” says ITC Account Manager Ceri Jenkins, who helped organise this paid work experience opportunity.

New campaign encourages a ‘sick day-stow away’ to Queenstown

Queenstown NZ has launched a brilliant new tongue-in-cheek marketing campaign designed to convince Australians to ‘pull a sickie’ and visit the city for a long weekend.
