Carnival Cruise Line will offer 150 ship tours and nine of its Seminars at Sea for travel advisors in 2019.

The events, all hosted by the cruise line’s business development managers, will give advisors the chance to get onboard, see Carnival ships, and interact with representatives from the cruise lines. Ship tours, which comes with an onboard lunch, are all free for travel advisors.

Attendees who take advantage of the Seminars at Sea sailings will all get casino, shore excursions, and spa benefits to use during their sailings.

Carnival senior vice president of sales and trade marketing Adolfo Perez said the lineup of events” enables us to expose an incredible number of travel advisors to different ships, which will help them increase their Carnival bookings.”  

The ship tour schedule kicks off on March 16 at Port Canaveral with Carnival Sunshine and continues in April in Tampa with Carnival Paradise on April 27, Carnival Miracle on April 28, and in Vancouver on April 29 with Carnival Legend.

In May, Carnival will off ship tours on Carnival Breeze in Port Canaveral on May 4, Carnival Liberty in Orlando on May 10, Carnival Paradise in Tampa on May 25, and Carnival Ecstasy in Jacksonville on May 30.

The rest of the ship tour schedule will be added to GoCCL, where agents can also register, each week.
