The announcement that Allison Brennan had passed away late last week has saddened Australia and the travel industry.


According to the D'Arcy Partnership's Michelle Tan, Ms Brennan passed on Friday due to natural causes.


“As anyone who’s met Allison knows, it’s hard not to be moved by her positivity and joie de vivre,” Ms Tan said. “Hence why even though she had only been with the company for a few months, we are all saddened by the news and she will be deeply missed.”


Ms Brennan, who heavily promoted Voyager of the Seas and the many features to Australian consumers over her short, but impressive career at Royal Caribbean never got to see the largest vessel sail into Australian waters which is due to arrive on November 2nd.
