Silversea agent appreciation month doles out gift cards, free cruises

Silversea agent appreciation month doles out gift cards, free cruises
Silversea Cruises is expressing its appreciation for travel agents throughout March by providing a $250 Visa Gift Card in connection with 69 voyages when booked between Feb. 24 and March 31.

Plus, the new 'Sell Three, Sail Free' program enables agents to earn their own free familiarization cruise when they book, during the same period, three new suites on any 2016 voyage.

Both benefits are available to agents based in the Americas.

'We're showing our deep appreciation for the loyalty and support of the travel agent community with an exceptional opportunity for our agent partners to boost their sales and receive generous personal rewards in the process, over and above their commission,' said Mark Conroy, Silversea's managing director for the Americas.

The new incentives come at a time when Silversea is also offering value to agents' clients with its 'Most Exclusive All-inclusive' packages available on featured Mediterranean, Asia and Africa itineraries. The packages include a two-night pre-cruise stay at a deluxe hotel with transfers between airport, hotel and the ship (or for Africa voyages, a three-night safari in Kenya or South Africa) and round-trip international economy airfare from more than 50 gateways in the US and Canada.

Passengers on the featured voyages also get free Wi-Fi and a wide choice of free shore excursions, offered in every port of call.

For the 'Sell Three, Sail Free' program, cruise deposits for new bookings must be received by March 31. Agents whose bookings qualify for the program need to submit a redemption form and take their cruise prior to Sept. 30.
