The online game, designed to keep agents up to date on Carnival’s ships and itineraries, will run for 18 days, through Feb. 28.
Every day of the contest agents who visit Facebook.com/carnivaltrade can play along and find three ship- or port-related terms in a word-search puzzle. Each time participants find a word, a fun fact pops up with relevant information.
For example, finding the word “PANORAMA” yields “The all-new Carnival Panorama will take your clients on a picturesque cruise through Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlán, and Puerto Vallarta starting December 2019.”
Completing the three-word challenge automatically enters the agent in an instant daily giveaway for a $25 Amazon gift card, as well as the drawing for the grand prize – a three-day cruise on Carnival Panorama, which debuts in December.
“We’ve been releasing a steady stream of news about our ships and itineraries lately, so we came up with an easy, interactive and rewarding way to help our travel partners stay informed,” said Adolfo Perez, senior vice-president of sales and trade marketing for Carnival.
“There’s a lot of buzz about Carnival in the agent community, and the new Word Search Contest not only offers great prize incentives, but it’s a fun way for agents to gain the knowledge they need to successfully sell Carnival.”
The grand prize is a three-day cruise on Carnival Panorama departing Long Beach, California, Dec. 11. The package includes airfare, one hotel night and $200 for travel expenses for one lucky agent.
