Carnival brings back Amp Up Commission Challenge

'We’re excited to once again have this incentive program kick off just in time for wave [season],' Adolfo Perez said
Carnival Cruise Line is bringing back its Amp Up Commission Challenge enabling travel advisors to qualify for higher pay rates in 2023.

Advisors will be able to increase their commissions up to 15% for the full year based on bookings made from Jan. 1 through March 31.

First true wave in several years

'This is our first true wave season in several years, and we know how important this time is for our travel advisors, so we’re excited to once again have this incentive program kick off just in time for wave and to offer the opportunity for travel advisors to grow their business and their commissions,' said Adolfo Perez, SVP global sales and trade marketing for Carnival.

Previously offered 2017-2019

'When we previously offered the Amp Up program from 2017 to 2019,' he added, 'it was very well-received by the travel advisor community, so we know this will be a great boost for them as they head into the New Year.'

Qualification requirements

Participating agencies will need to make from 20 to 125 bookings during the January to March period to qualify for higher commission levels between 11% and 15%, which will be applied to bookings made from April 1 through Dec. 31.

To participate, travel advisors must register on during the opt-in period which started Jan. 17, and runs until Feb. 15.

The program is open to agencies in the US (including Puerto Rico) and Canada that currently qualify for 10% to 14% commissions. Only new bookings that are fully deposited or paid in full between Jan. 1 and March 31 will count toward the goal.
