Dream Destination Conference 2017 Alaska Calling Cruise

First Financial Security will host 80 of its top field associates and guests on Regent Seven Seas Mariner May 31-June 7 for Dream Destination Conference 2017 cruise to Alaska.

In less than a week, First Financial Security, Inc. (FFS) hosts its annual Dream Destination Conference 2017 (DDC17) reward trip. This year, 80 FFS associates and their guests will enjoy the cruise of a lifetime to Alaska. Setting sail from Seward, AK on May 31, they’ll travel southward through the Gulf of Alaska. The ship disembarks in Vancouver, B.C. on June 7.

Regent Seven Seas Cruise Line’s sleek Seven Seas Mariner will be FFS’ “ship away from home” for the eight-day/seven-night cruise. Known for its luxury and exclusivity, The Mariner is the first ship to offer all-suite, all-balcony cabins. Regent’s six-star cruises are all-inclusive and feature a comfortable chic ambience, great dining, and plenty of activities for its passengers.
