PALM BEACH, FL — Margaritaville at Sea has launched new perks for the travel trade.
The cruise line pledges to hold one stateroom on every 2022 sailing to a travel advisor fam rate.
It’s also introducing new VIP amenities for agents, including a Travel Advisor Concierge.
Margaritaville at Sea, which rebranded from Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line a few months ago, is scheduled to set sail May 14, a two-week delay from the original April 30 launch date.
The ship’s two-night roundtrips to Grand Bahama Island include onboard entertainment, gourmet food and beverage options, and casual-luxe staterooms. Passengers looking to extend their stay in paradise can book the ‘Cruise & Stay’ package, with up to four nights at one of the brand’s beachfront partner resorts on Grand Bahama Island.
Last month Margaritaville at Sea has launched a new website geared exclusively to its travel agent partners. The site, at BookParadise.com, offers advanced functionality and numerous educational resources, says the cruise line, allowing travel advisors to learn, market, experience and book vacations with Margaritaville at Sea.
Agents who register at BookParadise.com can request their sailing at a special reduced rate.
Once onboard, agents can also take advantage of the cruise line’s Travel Advisor Concierge service, including priority check-in, Concierge Club access, priority embarkation, and more.
Agents will also get a behind-the-scenes ship tour and other surprises, says Francis Riley, chief commercial officer of Margaritaville at Sea.
“Travel advisors already play an integral role in our success, and we value this group greatly as instrumental partners in the growth of our all-new vacation brand, Margaritaville at Sea,” said Francis Riley, chief commercial officer of Margaritaville at Sea. “We look forward to welcoming our travel advisor partners onboard very soon, so they can personally experience the product while educating themselves on our truly unique selling proposition.”
