Carnival unfurls wave season agent sweepstakes

Carnival unfurls wave season agent sweepstakes
Carnival Cruise Line is offering travel agents the opportunity to win one of three 'Homeport Getaway' cruise/land vacation grand prize packages, as well as 600 additional 'instant win' prizes. This is part of the new 'Cruise, Explore & So Much More' wave season sweepstakes, which begins today and runs through Feb. 12.

'We wanted to kick off the new year by providing travel agents the opportunity to win a trip that combines a chance to explore our most popular homeport cities with all the fun and excitement of a Carnival cruise,' said Adolfo Pérez, vp sales & trade marketing. 'And since wave season is such a busy time of the year for our valued partners, we added some fun daily "instant win" prize opportunities, as well.'

In the sweepstakes agents can win one of three cruise/land vacation grand prizes from their choice three homeports: Miami, Los Angeles (Long Beach) and New Orleans. The prize includes round-trip airfare for two, a two-night hotel stay, $1,000 in spending money and balcony accommodations on a three- to eight-day cruise. 

Participants can also win one of 600 'instant prizes' which include an invitation to the US debut of Carnival Vista in New York in November 2016, Visa gift cards and various Carnival logo items and branded merchandise.

To participate agents should enter each FIT booking they make during the sweepstakes period at They'll be entered into a drawing for one of the three grand prizes, to be announced on or around Feb. 19.  Each booking also qualifies agents to participate in an interactive scratch-off game where they may bag one of the 600 'instant win' prizes.
