Atlas Ocean Voyages is unveiling its inaugural Antarctica season early, giving travel advisors a chance to 'Get Paid Now' for deposited bookings.

Immediate reward and client savings

The luxe-adventure line's 'Get Paid Now' incentive immediately rewards travel advisors with up to $750 per deposited booking, and their clients receive up to $2,000 savings on a World Navigator journey.

Planned to begin sailing in mid-2021, polar-class newbuild World Navigator is scheduled for its inaugural Antarctica voyage in November 2021.

'Travel advisors have always been an indispensable partner for cruise lines and now they need our support more than ever,' said Alberto Aliberti, president of Atlas Ocean Voyages. The 'Get Paid Now' offer helps the trade in these unprecedented times, he continued, and by opening the Antarctica program for booking on May 4, this gives advisors more destinations when discussing future travels with their clients.

'Expedition ships will help lead recovery'

'We will all travel again and small, safe, luxury expedition ships like World Navigator will help lead the cruise industry’s recovery,' Aliberti added.

'We know travel advisors are working extra hard these days planning future dream vacations and travel experiences for their clients,' added Brandon Townsley, VP sales and trade partnerships for Atlas Ocean Voyages. The 'Get Paid Now' offer is applicable to all itineraries and may be combined with any current Atlas Ocean Voyages promotion.

Gift card now/15% commission

For every booking with deposit, travel advisors will immediately receive a $750 gift card per suite or $500 gift card per Horizon and Veranda stateroom. The line also pays 15% commission.

Clients will get $1,000 savings plus free business-class air travel per suite guest or $500 savings plus free economy-class air travel per Horizon or Veranda stateroom guest.

Changes to cruises departing before March 31, 2022, may be made without penalty.
