Norwegian launches agent incentives across all three brands

Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings is giving travel agents plenty of reasons to book with its cruise lines, announcing a juicy incentive for each.

Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) has officially launched its new rewards program for Australian and Kiwi trade partners, with the first incentive offering agents 20 points (one point equals $1) on all bookings placed between 11 and 31 January 2021 for sailings from December 2021 and beyond.

To earn points, bookings are to be entered and deposited through BookNCL (accessible through Norwegian Central) or by calling NCL’s reservations team on 1300 255 200 (AU) or 0800 969 283 (NZ), and then submitted through the Partners First Rewards website (which can be accessed via the trade portal).

Regent Seven Seas Cruises (RSSC) is giving its Australian trade partners the opportunity to win an exclusive stay at the Blue Mountain’s iconic Spicers Sangoma Retreat, as well as several decadent experiences with the cruise line’s vice president and director of sales for Australia and New Zealand, Lisa Pile and Gillian Seller.

To qualify for this opulent incentive, agents will need to be one of five top sellers between 1 January and 20 March 2021 of any RSSC sailings that depart between 1 October 2021 and 25 April 2023.

Finally, Oceania Cruises, has unveiled an exciting trade incentive of its own.

For every booking made on sailings departing from 1 October 2021 through to 31 December 2022, including all itineraries in the line’s ‘Australia Day Upgrade Sale’, travel partners will be rewarded with an upfront bonus commission in the form of a $150 gift card.

Available to retail and wholesale partners in Australia and New Zealand, the incentive will run from until 28 February 2021.

The promotion is not applicable for group booking transfers, with bookings to be deposited by 7 March 2021. To claim the gift card, agents must register online with a valid email, their home address and mobile number.
