Norwegian Cruise Line has launched a new incentive programme, NCL Freestyle Rewards, allowing travel agents to collect points towards gifts or vouchers.
The move to launch the incentive programme follows the recent introduction of Norwegian Central, the company’s new travel agent portal, and NCL Air, its fly-cruise booking platform.
Eamonn Ferrin, vice president and managing director of NCL UK&I and MEA said: “We can’t stress enough how incredibly thankful we are for the commitment, hard work and loyalty our travel partners continue to show us at all times. As we enter a new year that provides for novel opportunities for the travel business, we want to offer our valued partners another tool to help them capitalise on the great pent-up demand we see for our cruises, all while rewarding them for their continuous dedication.”
NCL Freestyle Rewards points are awarded based on different factors including stateroom category and cruise itinerary – encouraging agents to identify opportunities to upsell.
Travel agents have 40 days from booking date to claim their points, with rewards ranging from 200 points for a two to six-day balcony cruise, to 800 points for voyages of seven-day plus voyage in The Haven by Norwegian.
In celebration of the launch, NCL is offering all agents who register by February 28, 2021, 50 bonus points.
As an added incentive to enrol, the 500th, 1,000th, 1,500th and 2,000th travel partners to sign up will each get an additional 1,000 points. All partners registered by the end of February will also be entered to win a seven-day fly-cruise for two to the Western Mediterranean onboard Norwegian Epic.
