Compagnie du Ponant courts agents with special rates

Compagnie du Ponant has introduced special travel agent rates on select cruises – up to 50% off the regular rate. Agents are invited to explore the Caribbean aboard the three-masted sailing vessel Le Ponant or South America on board either of the company’s newest 264-guest yachts, L’Austral or Le Boréal. The cruise company relies on the agent market for sales and makes it a priority to educate agents on its upscale product line, knowing that it’s far easier for agents to sell a product if they have first-hand knowledge. The fams allow agents to experience the intimacy, authenticity and elegance that have earned Compagnie du Ponant an exceptional reputation in the cruise industry. Select week-long December cruises aboard the 64-guest Le Ponant are priced at an agent rate of US$1,875 p.p., double, including all port taxes and fees. Agents booking any of the 10 South American voyages of 11 to 46 days offered through April 2013 enjoy a 50% discount, with agent fares starting at US$2,428. Fams are subject to stateroom availability and agents are encouraged to book early as space is limited. Agents interested in booking a trip or learning more about these offers can call 1-888-400-1082 or e-mail [email protected]. (
