Carnival Cruise Lines is offering travel agents an opportunity to enjoy the “Fun Ship” vacation experience first-hand on a complimentary basis through its new Travel Agent Complimentary Cruise Promotion. From Sept. 12-26, agents may visit GoCCL.com, the line’s travel agent Internet portal, and select from a variety of sailings departing between September and January 2014. As a special reward to agents who have signed up for the line’s Travel Agent Rewards and Carnival Passport programs, as well as to encourage new enrollees, agents enrolled in these programs can submit their cruise request on Sept. 11, one day prior to the promotion launch.
“During our Carnival Conversations events, we heard from agents that one of the best ways for them to sell the Carnival product would be to simply experience a cruise just as their clients would,” said Joni Rein, Carnival’s vice-president of worldwide sales. “We wanted to give agents the opportunity to sail on the ‘Fun Ships’ with their friends and family while also rewarding and encouraging participation in our Carnival Passport and Travel Agent Rewards programs by offering early access to this exciting new promotion for members.” Agents may view available cruises and request their preferred sailing by visiting http://www.GoCCL.com .
Upon receiving a booking confirmation number, agents then call Carnival at 1-800-438-6744, ext. 78830, to secure their reservation. Cabin space is limited and will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis. As part of the terms and conditions of the program, agents may receive one complimentary cruise and bring up to three guests in their stateroom depending on availability. A non-refundable $50 deposit for first and second guests is required, which will be converted to an onboard credit upon boarding.
