MSC Cruises is continuing to add to its outreach to the travel trade with a new 10% bonus commission on all sailings.
The promotion is available for all bookings made by U.S.-based travel advisors between June 2 and July 31 for sailings through May 31, 2023. It also includes all bookings made with future cruise credits.
In a statement, MSC Cruises USA’s new EVP and CCO Lynn Torrent, said that the line took inspiration from a recent, similar promotion on MSC Divina that has been “a win-win for travel advisors and our guests.”
“Today we’re doubling down on that by expanding the bonus commission across the fleet and throughout our World of Discovery. We’re going above and beyond to demonstrate our commitment to our travel advisors. The expanded bonus commission gives them the tools they need to help our guests explore the world while enjoying the relaxation, sophistication, and international flair MSC Cruises is famous for,” she said.
MSC also recently revamped its MSC Voyagers Club loyalty program, adding a new range of benefits including fare savings and early-bird reward points.
Among the range of benefits is a minimum discount of 5% for all members on any cruise booked at any time. This replaces the former Voyages Selection feature, which offered savings on only a select number of itineraries.
Cruisers who book further in advance will get special perks. Those who book any sailing at least six months prior to departure will receive a further 5% discount. And, Silver-, Gold-, and Diamond-tier members who book at least nine months ahead of sailing will receive yet another 5% discount, plus $50 shipboard credit.
And, all members who book any MSC Cruises sailing at least 12 months before departure will receive double reward points.
