The brands are Carnival Cruise Line, Cunard, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises and Seabourn.
The lines had previously announced commission tiers would be maintained through 2022, so today’s news extends this protection for an additional year. Commissions are typically commensurate with sailed booking volumes per line.
Commitment to support travel advisors
With this, the five brands are ensuring travel advisors continue to earn pay at their current rates for the next two years without their commission percentage changing.
'The Carnival Corporation family of great cruise lines stands together in our commitment to support our travel advisor partners as our industry progresses to the full return to guest service,' President and CEO Arnold Donald said. 'In honor of the holiday season where we take the opportunity to think about all that we’re grateful for, I speak on behalf of each of our entire team when I say that we truly appreciate our continued partnership with the travel advisor community.'
