Carnival Cruise Line said earlier today that they will protect commission rates for travel agents through next year.
The commission tier that travel agents earned in 2019 will carry over for all Carnival cruises booked from now through 2022.
“We truly appreciate the continued partnership and loyalty of our valued travel partners,” said Adolfo Perez, Carnival’s senior vice president of global trade sales and marketing. “By maintaining our current commission tiers, we’re recognizing the important role that travel advisors play in the vacation-selling process while providing peace of mind knowing their efforts through 2022 will be compensated at the rate they have worked so hard to earn.”
Carnival Cruise Line had previously announced that commission tiers would be maintained through 2021, so today’s announcement extends this protection for an additional year. Commissions are typically commensurate with sailed booking volumes at Carnival.
Today’s announcement is part of the Carnival Cruise Line’s Onboard with You pledge which includes tools that support travel partners as a key success factor in Carnival’s previously announced plan of a gradual, phased in return to cruising.
