After eight years and nearly 100 professional photo shoots, Travel Weekly’s flagship travel agent competition Cover Stars is back!
Once again, we’ll be taking 12 frontline travel sellers on an incredible trip, where they’ll be photographed for our front covers throughout 2019.
Cover Stars 2019: Bahamas Beat will take place from November 18-24, and marks NCL’s second outing as headline sponsor of this amazing competition.
This year’s winners will fly to Miami with British Airways, before staying overnight in Miami courtesy of Gold Medal.
They’ll then head out on Norwegian Sky on a four-night sailing taking in Grand Bahama Island, Nassau and NCL’s very own private island, Great Stirrup Cay, before returning to the UK overnight on November 23.
The entry process hasn’t changed – we still want our agent readers to tell us why they want to be a 2019 Cover Star before we open up voting to the public.
Lucy Huxley, Travel Weekly editor-in-chief, added: "When we launched Cover Stars nearly a decade ago, we could scarcely have believed it would still be so popular and we would be gearing up for our 100th professional cover shoot."
"The fact that NCL has decided to support this initiative for a second time is testament not only to the competition’s place in the hearts of the travel trade, but also of NCL’s commitment to championing the stars of the industry – its travel agent partners."
Nick Wilkinson, NCL vice-president and managing director for UK, Ireland and MEA, said: "Norwegian is delighted to be headline sponsor for Travel Weekly’s 2019 Cover Stars competition for a second time, reinforcing our commitment to the UK travel trade."
"We’re looking forward to hosting 12 lucky frontline agent winners on an incredible familiarisation trip aboard Norwegian Sky, taking in Miami and the Bahamas. They’ll also get the opportunity to experience our beautiful private island, Great Stirrup Cay, and of course Premium All Inclusive cruising aboard our fun, friendly and informal ship. Good luck!"
