Royal Caribbean International has decided to pay travel agents full commission when their clients redeem a future cruise certificate.

Vicki Freed, SVP sales and trade support & service, noted Royal Caribbean had been paying commissions for future cruise certificates since a large number of travelers were impacted by the hurricanes last fall.

'I am delighted to say that Royal Caribbean will be making this a permanent policy,' Freed said.

It will take effect April 1.
