Carnival Cruise Lines is showing its appreciation to travel agents by giving them 25 complimentary cabins every day in October.
To qualify, agents must be part of Carnival’s trade e-mail list, accessible through the line’s agent Internet portal, GoCCL.com.
“Our complimentary cabin giveaways have been a huge hit with travel agents from a sales education standpoint as they offer them an opportunity to enjoy our product the way their clients would,” said Joni Rein, vice-president of worldwide sales. “Agents have told us they would like to see more of these giveaways and we’re thrilled to round out the year with these complimentary cabins as a sign of our appreciation.”
Through Oct. 31, agents on Carnival’s trade distribution list will be automatically entered to win one of the 25 cruises given away each day throughout the month. Travel agents currently not subscribed to the e-mail list may opt in at any time by visiting http://www.GoCCL.com . Winners will be chosen randomly each day and will be informed of their win by e-mail.
As a special bonus to celebrate CLIA’s National Cruise Vacation Week, which runs from Oct. 6-13, Carnival will offer triple giveaways of 75 cruises each day as part of the “Sail-Away Giveaway.”
As part of the program, agents may select from a variety of itineraries, cruise durations and cabin categories. They may bring up to three guests with them based on availability and will be responsible for government fees and taxes, gratuities and any on-board expenses.
