Carnival Cruise Line Brings Back the Amp Up Commission Challenge

Carnival Celebration

Carnival Cruise Line announced the return of its Amp Up Commission Challenge which will allow travel advisors to qualify for higher commission rates in 2023, according to a statement.

“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, senior vice president of global sales and trade marketing for Carnival Cruise Line.

“When we previously offered the Amp Up program from 2017 to 2019, 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.”

The program allows travel advisors to increase their commissions up to 15 percent for the full 2023 year based on bookings made from January 1 through March 31, 2023.

Agencies that will take part in the program will need to make from 20 to 125 bookings between January to March 2023 booking period in order to qualify for higher commission levels of 11 and 15 percent. The commission will be applied to bookings made from April 1 through December 31, 2023.

The opt-in period starts on January 17 and will be open until February 15, 2023. Travel advisors must register during this opt-in period to be eligible for the commissions.

The program is open to agencies in the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada. Only new bookings that are fully deposited or paid in full between January 1 and March 31 are eligible and will count toward the goal.
