Carnival Cruise Line is giving travel agents the chance to see more than 24 ships in 14 ports during its 2018 ship inspections and Seminar at Seas schedule.

“Our Seminar at Sea and ship inspections programs continually prove to be some of the most effective ways for agents to learn about and sell our brand with greater success – and they’re great fun as well,” said Adolfo Perez, Carnival's senior vice president of sales and trade marketing, in a statement.

“These events encompass much more than a simple visit and presentation. Our shipboard and sales teams are passionate about delivering experiences that inspire and motivate agents long after they’ve left the ship.”

Ship inspections give agents a chance to tour ships, including opportunities to see the different staterooms available for booking. Seminars at Sea, which Carnival will offer on 12 ships from seven ports in 2018, give agents a chance to get onboard a Carnival ship and see the hardware while also participating in sales and marketing seminars.

Agents can register for the inspections or the Seminars at Sea on Carnival Passport at GoCCL.com.
