Freed - 'We want agents everywhere to know that we truly value them'
Starting today, Royal Caribbean International's Travel Agent Appreciation Week features visits from senior company executives, bonus commission opportunities and the chance to win cruises.

Nearly 100 company executives and team members will surprise agents throughout the US and Canada with gifts of appreciation at their workplaces. While Royal Caribbean sales managers and specialists regularly visit agents as part of the line’s 'Loyal To You Always' commitment, this week will provide an opportunity for senior executives and agents to meet and exchange ideas.

In total, Royal Caribbean aims to visit more than 4,000 agents.

'We want travel agents everywhere to know that we truly value them as our partners and that travel agents make the WOW go ‘round by recommending Royal Caribbean to their clients,' said RCI's Vicki Freed, svp sales, trade support and services.

As part of Travel Agent Appreciation Week, Royal Caribbean is offering multiple bonus agent pay incentives. Those agents who make a new booking in a Crown Loft Suite or higher category stateroom aboard Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas from June 9-30 will receive a bonus commission of $250 per stateroom.

Furthermore, their clients will receive $1,000 on-board credit per stateroom and the third and fourth passenger in the same room also will sail free. Agents would need to make their bookings for sailings departing through Aug. 31, and note promotion code ‘SUITES.'
