MIAMI — Carnival Cruise Line is sailing full steam ahead in 2020 with 25% more ship tours and nearly double the number of seminar at sea sailings for agents.
Offered free of charge, ship tours will total 200 in 2020, covering all 27 ships in the Carnival Cruise Line fleet. They’ll be hosted by a Carnival BDM or director who’ll conduct a guided tour of staterooms, public rooms and deck areas. Lunch is also included.
There’ll be 17 specially priced seminars at sea that allow agents to attend onboard training sessions while sailing as a guest, all the while experiencing shipboard activities, facilities and amenities.
“The best way to sell Carnival is to see Carnival, which is why we are committed to getting more travel advisors onboard our ships this year,” said Adolfo Perez, Carnival’s senior vice president of global sales and trade marketing. “If you’ve never been on one of our ships or haven’t been on one lately, this is the best way to see the latest Carnival innovations. A seminar at sea will immerse you in every aspect of the Carnival vacation experience which is a tremendous selling tool.”
With the introduction of the totally renovated Carnival Radiance this summer, Carnival will wrap up a decade-long US$2 billion fleet-enhancement program that has touched every Carnival ship and transformed the shipboard product. While tours will be focused on the newest products — Carnival Panorama in early 2020, Carnival Radiance in the summer and Mardi Gras in the fall — visits will be hosted on every ship.
Agents interested in taking a tour or seminar can register at GoCCL.com or contact their Carnival business development manager.
