MIAMI — To wish travel advisors a very merry holiday season, Carnival Corporation has announced that it will maintain current commission tiers earned through 2023.
The offer applies to the company’s five North American brands: Carnival Cruise Line, Cunard, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises and Seabourn. All five lines had previously announced that commission tiers would be maintained through 2022.
Commissions are typically commensurate with sailed booking volumes per line. With this new announcement, the five brands are ensuring that travel advisors continue to earn commission at their current rates for the next two years, without their commission percentage changing.
“The Carnival Corporation family of great cruise lines stands together in our commitment to support our travel advisor partners as our industry progresses to the full return to guest service,” said Arnold Donald, president and CEO of Carnival Corporation. “In honour of the holiday season where we take the opportunity to think about all that we’re grateful for, I speak on behalf of each of our entire team when I say that we truly appreciate our continued partnership with the travel advisor community.
“We are maintaining commission tiers through 2023 as one more way to thank them for their support over this last year, by providing peace of mind and confidence knowing their efforts will be compensated at the rate they have worked so hard to earn.”
