Courier December Courier - Page 23

THIS MARKS THE EIGHTH YEAR of Courier’s Distinguished Dozen program, and the tour suppliers and destination marketing organizations that are honored by NTA tour operators in 2018 are prouder than ever. On the pages that follow you’ll see the gold, silver and bronze winners of the program’s 12 categories. These members gained the votes of tour operators because of their quality of product, level of customer service and dedication to relationship-building. Gold winners include Norwegian Cruise Line, earning its fifth consecutive such recognition; Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, another five-time gold winner; Broadway Inbound (Shubert) and Hilton Worldwide, both with a third consecutive gold; and the Pacific Northwest duo of Travel Oregon and Travel Portland, both repeat winners from 2017. We’ve got first-time gold winners, too, including Shepler’s Mackinac Island Ferry, from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. 19
