Carnival’s Amp Up Commission Challenge Is Back

Carnival Cruise Line is bringing back its Amp Up Commission Challenge which allows travel advisors to qualify for higher commission rates in 2023.

Through the program, travel advisors will be able to increase their commissions up to 15% for the full 2023 year based on bookings made from Jan. 1 through March 31, 2023.

Adolfo Perez, senior vice president of global sales and trade marketing for Carnival Cruise Line, said: “This is our first true Wave season in several years, and we know how important this time is for our travel advisors, so we’re excited to once again have this incentive program kick off just in time for Wave and to offer the opportunity for travel advisors to grow their business and their commissions.” Perez continued: “When we previously offered the Amp Up program from 2017 to 2019, it was very well-received by the travel advisor community, so we know this will be a great boost for them as they head into the New Year.”

Participating agencies will need to make from 20 to 125 bookings during the January to March 2023 booking period to qualify for higher commission levels between 11% and 15% which will be applied to bookings made from April 1 through Dec. 31, 2023.

To participate, travel advisors must register on during the opt-in period which starts today, Jan. 17, and runs until Wed., Feb. 15.

The program is open to agencies in the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada that currently qualify for 10% to 14% commissions. Only new bookings that are fully deposited or paid in full between Jan. 1 and March 31 are eligible and will count toward the goal.
