The Big Cheese

Big Cheese with Seabourn’s Tony Archbold

This week we got up close and personal with Seabourn’s Senior Director of Sales and Marketing, Australia and New Zealand until he requested we sit further away.

The great thing about my job is…

I sell Seabourn cruises…surely it’s the best job there is!!

The challenge for the industry is …

To persuade those who don’t cruise to cruise. 95 per cent of Australians don’t know what they are missing out on.

My greatest achievement is…

Leading Seabourn in Australia.

The biggest thing in MICE this year will be…

More options to choose from now that we have five ships in our fleet.

I try to relax by…

Cruising of course.

I don’t understand why…

People ignore the cruise value offering based on outdated or just wrong preconceptions of cruising.

My favourite venue/destination is…

Venice.

I’ve always wanted to travel to…

Antarctica.

I am scared to death of…

Finding out what I’m scared to death of.

I can’t live without…

Holidays with my wife of 34 years, Kate!

I really wish I had…

More holidays…see last answer!!

If I could invite four people to a dinner party, they’d be…

Barack Obama, Andrea Bocelli, Billy Connolly, Tim Cahill…the night wouldn’t be long enough!!

For anyone starting out in the industry one piece of advice I’d give would be…

Dream big, work hard, take chances and enjoy the world!!
