MIRAMAR, FLORIDA – The World, Residences at Sea, recognized its top port agents and travel partners from across the globe on Sunday, March 9, 2014 at the company’s 7th annual Celebration of Excellence awards dinner. Held at the home of President and CEO Tom McAlpin, honorees enjoyed a Caribbean-themed, family-style barbecue amid a gorgeous South Florida sunset, the perfect backdrop for the outdoor event.
Federica Tucci, Managing Director and CEO, accepted The World’s Excellence in Service award on behalf of TFL Tours. The local company was one of only 18 honored, from a field of 95, that met The World’s qualifications for receiving the award.

“Tonight’s event is about thanking you, our valued partners, for all the support that you give us throughout the year and especially for the high quality service you provide,” said McAlpin as he addressed the honorees. “We appreciate the special attention that you give us and your positive attitude in helping us to deliver ‘the best of the best’ to our Residents and Guests.”
